As much as it annoys me how many people thing the Dauntless is a Federation ship (I don't care if it can be seen through the window on the Enterprise-J, you can see the Nova and Prometheus too, it's not the first time they reused ship models...sorry for the mini-rant) I can see the Dauntless being a somewhat popular C-store item.
Dauntless is a federation ship in the time of enterprise J. Why shouldnt it be allowed in game. For all we know starfleet liked the design and decided to build it themselves
I see your point, but this ship would be better suited as a Escort.
1: The ship has no facilities of luxury of any kind (no holodecks and so on).
2: The ship is relatively small, and has only small compartments from what we've seen. (Provided they design the ship like the imposter ship).
3: The general shape of the ship is better suited for speed and manuverability (obviously, since the ship was designed for faster-than-warp flight).
Personally I'd think a escort with a engeneering oriented BO layout would be best for this ship.

Maybe have the slipstream drive as a console?
I was thinking that Commader Tac, Engineer Lt. Commander, Lt. Science and Tac, and Ensign Engineer would be the layout of the Kumari (Andorian ship). However, I could see it having Commander and Ensign Tactical slots, Lt. Commander, and Lt. Engineer slots, and Lt. Science slots. For Devices, either 3 of each or 4 Taactial 3 engineer and 2 science slots. That would work for me.
There is already a Fleet Escort. It is the Hermes/Grypon/Dervish/Maelstrom class.
