It can be that an old design schematic is used, but in fact it's a modern powerfull refit, you know, something as the fleet Excelsior is atm. Besides it's suposed to outshine the Excelsior. The thing is, the Galaxy needs to be tuned up just a bit to make it more competitive. Although, I personally like to play slower supertanks

I see your point. Is it that the Federation gets more peacefull as time passes by, so their ships are more oriented towards exploration and research rather than raw firepower?
Nah....the Vesta totally undermines my last point.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!
