The Jupiter-class always struck me as a slapdash assembly where function won out over form. It reminds me of the description of some of the ships in the DS9 Millennium-series of books where prolonged war causes the Federation to just throw crap together.
To me, it makes sense it would be phased out as more refined classes were developed like the various refits, Typhoon, and Galaxy-X. The Jupiter is simply a stopgap to fill a need in the fleet until better ships could be launched. It struck me as a bathtub with nacelles taped onto it.
Does that mean it shouldn't be playable? Well, who knows. I'm not against it.
