36k hull
turn 8
impulse mod .15(guessing same as other hc)

http://www.stowiki.org/Advanced_Escort
31 k hull
turn 16
impulse mod .20

27k hull
turn 15
impulse mod .15

these thips are roughly the same size, with the recon sci being largest and heavy cruiser being smallest.
as you can see, escorts are at no disadvantage in hull strength
indeed, they would be have more powerful heals than science ships.
the base hull disparity just is not there.
well, except for bop's, you actually notice their hulls are weak when you get into a fight...
t6 cruiser? keep it, i'd rather have aux to dampers 3.
as it turns out, an intrepid would lose a fight with a connie.
and thats canon.
! the power of plot compels you.
