The problem is, you end up replicating all of the good Bop boff layours, but none of them pay for the flexibility like the BoP does. If this continues, the BoP won't be worth flying anymore. The unique combinations are why the BoP has less hull, shields and no ensign slot. The only other option is to buff the BoP inline with the new ships being made.

*looks at the Rhose Island stats* ...unless this is what Cryptic wants for all tiers.

it would need
4 forward weapons
3 rear weapons
3 enginerring consoles
2 science
3 tactical

commander and lt commander tactical slots
lt commander engineering
lt commander science
And would of course be overpowered like hell.

I think more reasonable would be:
Commander Tactical
Lieutenant Tactical
Ensign Tactical
Lieutenant Commander Engineering
Lieutenant Science

Not really sure it's checkmate when recent developer talk has stated that there will be no federation carriers.

Ideas get changed or dropped.
Deanna Troi was supposed to have three breasts.
She doesn't, the idea was dropped.

That's why even in the most extreme of situations we never get to see an Akira use her supposed fighter compliment.
Even when one engaged a bunch of Warbirds in Voy:"Message in a Bottle".
Maybe it's also because you can't get a 30 meter wide fighter through a 20 meter wide hangar door and they're stuck inside.
Or maybe because you can't get the ammunition for 15 torpedo launchers and some supposed 60+ fighters into a ship that size because it makes no sense.
Therfore the Akira is not the "gunship/battlecruiser/aircraft carrier" she was supposed to be.
Besides when the ship is supposed to be the über-pro blablabla etc. supercruisr that can do everything at once she was envisioned to be: why do other ships even exist?

The Akira may not be a carrier, but she most definitely is a gunship.
The physical presence of all 15 torpedo launchers make that a canon fact.
