All ships were created equal, it's just some are more equal than others!
Actually with regards to what Dan was saying, yes you can complete elite STF in a RA ship, infact with a good selection of skills you can use white mk XI gear and still be better than most pugs. Cryptic have upped the difficulty quite noticably and you can certainly be killed in 1-2 shots if you're unlucky even in the newer ships.
While the shiney new ships aren't needed to be good, to be at a level where you can make up for the sheer number of bad players in pugs a newer ship with more tactical consoles or more shields and hull will help a lot. Infact once you upgrade there is no reason to go back except for nostalgia or because you like the design of the ship.
I for one would love to fly an intrepid (fleet version if possible) but I know that short of pre-made teams I would be pretty much a support character to either heal or...what else do science skills escel at in PvE except gravity wells?
