With the proposed "Armour Slot" being an answer, what is the question?
There have been a lot of discussions on why cruisers are deficient in the balance equation, but there is remarkably little universally agreed on, with turn rate and the weakness of choice in ensign Engineering powers being about it. Other items like relative durability of the types of ships, damage output, power output, and crew mechanics are far more fractiously debated.
If the demands of some in this thread are listened to, then this change will do nothing to the relative durability of ship types. It won't even change the relative value of Engineering console slots, as the freed up slots apply to everyone and, ironically enough, Escorts get either equal or greater utility than cruisers from the remaining members of the current selection.
Which leaves ... what?
