Considering what you posted is a "pay to win" proposal (along with the price) his input seems quite apropriate.
More hull than any other escort (same as a cruiser), a special ability + 9 consoles as opposed to 8 which is standard for ships with special ability of which one is a universal console slot, something no ship has, one universal BO slot...what did you expect? A braindead nergasm?
Actually a bit small to be the 'engineer lieutenant commander hybrid' we've all been waiting for, with a crew compliment of 86 I'd expect it to be rounded up to 100 making it only slightly larger than the Defiant.
Well instead of adding a special power they can have a passive console that removes the shared torpedo fire cooldown and the shared cooldown from other torpedo abilities you got. And since you can in a way already activate multiple torpedo powers at once they kind of que up.
