The Andorian Destroyer would be based on the design of Shran's ship in Enterprise. I understand it is believed one such ship is currently in the design phase already.
The primary attributes of a modern naval Destroyer are: Threat Detection, High Speed and Moderate firepower. These three attributes allow the Destroyer to excel at its intended role which is, basically, everything. The Destroyer is the workhorse of the Navy; it's right arm.
The Andorian Destroyer will be a unique ship but it's basic class is first, a Science Vessel. This will grant it stealth detection, subsystem targeting, + 15 to aux power and the various other science goodies. Beyond that it will be a Tactical ship second.
It will be slightly faster and more agile than a RSV but less so than any current Fed Escort. Fastest of the Science ships, slowest of the Escorts. It will give up a bit of the Science shield modifier to balance this out
Here's my ideas:
Tactical Support Vessel
3 weapons fore
3 weapons aft
Shield Mod = 1.15 (most sci ships are 1.3)
Inertia = 60 (RSV is 50)
Turn rate = 15 (RSV is 13)
They've been working on an Andorian Escort, but it got put on the back burner at some point, so it's not going to be coming out until like next year. Also, given how Andorians are pretty much the Federation version of the Klingon, I don't see an andorian ship really being a science ship. A universal pure stat console also seems like a very unlikely addition, especially given the overwhelming bonus there.
If it's going to be a sci ship 1st and tac 2nd, then commander BOFF slot must be a sci slot, and not universal.
AFAIK commander level BOFF slots in any ship aren't universal, and also dictate the overall class of the ship.
If it were, I could just drop an Engy BOFF in there and make it a tactical cruiser, or another tac for a cruiser sized escort build or something.
Things start to not be good ideas when you talk about universal commander boff slots.
2. The universal Commander slot is powerful and currently only found on BOPs. These also have only 6 weapons, but no Sensor Analysis. On the other hand, they have a better weapon slot distribution for such a nimble ship. I don't think it's impossible, but I would rather go the safe way of Science Commander with universal LtC.
