I've been thinking about that myself. I think a good way to handle it would be to leave the full blown Scimitar as an NPC ship. Cryptic could then create their own Scimitar inspired version for players. The justification would be that the Scimitar was a prototype and only a few of them were made, which is why they stay as NPC ships. The ones that the players would get would be more of a production model similar to how cars are made today. I think that would be a reasonable compromise.
