Is there a federation ship that can go one on one with a Klingon ship?
Every time I see that it takes two or more Federation ships to defeat one Klingon ship.
Is that by design, or can ONE Federation Ship really take down a Klingon ship.
If so what ship is it and what kind of weapons does it use.

# 2 properly outfitted cruisers

cruisers can go 1v1 with Klingon cruisers if they are outfitted right. sometimes more weapons is not always better as well, the fewer beams the more power you have for other systems or higher damage.

There isn't really a big difference between Klingon and Federation ships on that level. The class of a ship is usually more important. In practice, it's hard to beat a cruiser - but that works both ways, of course, so a cruiser duel could take forever assuming both players are equally good. Healing is currently very strong in the game, and Cruisers are best at it. In 1 on 1 scenarios, it's quite possible that a Cruiser won't be able to be beaten - but the normal player vs player matches are not expected to give you 1 on 1, but teams of players fighting each other.

But for faction vs faction - a Fleet Escort can take down a Raptor - or vice versa. It depends on the skill of the Captains involved, and also some luck (a critical hit at the right moment might be enough to destroy the enemy ship). A Science Vessel against a Bird of Prey or a Raptor - can also turn out both ways. In all cases, the build of the ship affects the outcome, too.

It's a difference in experience levels and skill using powers to their best. But to give you an example, the other night I engaged a Klingon cruiser, A carrier, and a Bird of Prey with my Defiant backed by a cruiser, and we blew the crap out of them (well, except the cruiser, we never had enough time to deal with it since his 2 friends full impulsed back into the fray. )

If you like you're welcome to roll a KDF and we'd be more than happy to demonstrate with a fed char

You should also keep in mind that Klingons PvP a lot; they don't have as much PvE content, so that's what they do most of the time, so there's always a bit of a culture shock when Fed players who usually PvE run into them.

They can be beaten, though; it depends on you knowing how to use your ship, and whether the other Fed players are on the ball.

Yes. Yes there are several to choose from to use against the KDF.

since there is no answer to your question...

Once I was in a T4 Raptor going 1-on-1 against a T4 Defiant. We basically just flew head on into each other, cannons blasting, whatever buffs and debuffs flooding out. Our shields and hull conditions stayed pretty much exactly the same, front shield down, hull decreasing, heal a little, down again... every skill is in cool down.

In the end, the Defiant turned away and faced me with the intact shields. I, on the other hand, kept pumping power into the forward shield (kept it at 2% - 5% but UP) and slowly shot down his other shields. I barely won with 20% hull left.

You may not be the Picard of your time, but if you want it enough, you can do it!

p.s. actually 1-on-1 is very different from group matches, a lot of time, if you pit cruiser/science against each other, nobody can kill the other. But escort vs escort, someone's gotta die

my varanus can kill anything with its torp spam and tractor repulsors 3 buffed to do over 50k to hull while shoving you over 20km from anything resembling a healer to support you.
