What are you talking about? The bug has Commander Tactical, Lt. Commander Tactical, Ensign Engineering, and 2x Lt. Universal. How is this lack-luster? Do you know how many people would love it if the Ensign Tactical on the Defiant to be a Universal BOFF?

Mediocre turn, hull, and shields? The only thing that has better turn rate is a BoP, and they have much lower hull and shields. The Fleet Defiant has lower shields, hull, and turn rate.

And I do not agree that 20 is only barely more than 17. Once you start adding engine speed modifiers, skill points, etc, the difference only gets greater.
