Go ahead and build an 18th century first rate using 21st century materials, weapons and propulsion. See what happens.

Not with STO technology, or did you miss the older vulcan and klingon ships at tier 5?
Try and quote me saying that older ships should outperform newer ships. You can't, because I never have. A T5/Fleet Connie makes as much (IE: zero) logical sense as a T5/Fleet D7/K'Tinga, a T5/Fleet Excelsior, Ambassador or any other ship that has, in reality, long since been obsoleted by newer design concepts and technology.

What you're arguing for is effectively the same thing as asking for a WWI era Biplane with a jet engine, built from modern composites and carrying state of the art weapons to function as a stand in for say a Super-Hornet, Raptor or Lightning. It's a completely and utterly ridiculous notion.
