but the fact of the matter is the ship is in the wrong damm place it should be end game it should be best of the best
I personally think the Prometheus is best of the best. Akira might be equivalent to a Defiant but fan zeal has to stand for something. The Akira has appeared in 15 episodes. The Defiant has appeared in 72. It is clear that most fans are going to be more interested in the Defiant then the Akira.
Perhaps you should wait to see what the released Quad Phaser stats will be rather then basing all your assumptions off of a closed beta build where we only know it has an extra DMG mod and know nothing else about it. That might be a good idea. Yeah.
stay on target this thread is about the akira and our anger its being molested
The Akira's good but the claim that the Defiant is overrated is ignoring a lot of Trek canon. Yeah it had trouble at design stage, but only because it was too advanced for the tech available at the time. And then Starfleet was quite happy for it to be the first line of defense against the Dominion for the first few years of after first contact with them - over which time it built a reputation the way leading ships in series always do.

thats implying that its as powerful as all its fans think it is. in canon it hasn't shot down anything bigger or more powerful then breen ships of unknown capability, jem hadar fighters or birds of prey. it gave a few cardasian ships a bloody nose wile on the run from them, destroyed some defense platforms wile they were offline, but ran with its tail between its legs when it engaged a vorcha, and was only slightly more powerful then a 80 year old cruiser. it does exceed the usual power of its weight class, but its nothing compared to a heavy cruiser like the akira, that has capital ship torpedo launching ability and longer phaser arrays then the sovereign.

thats another ship fans think is more powerful then it is. its basically a light cruiser version of the sovereign heavy cruiser, that can split into 3 corvettes. it was only able to disable that pursuing nebula class because the nebula class was redlining its engines to keep up with "the fastest ship in the fleet", and all it took was a love tap to knock it out of warp. then it finished off a warbird with an unknown amount of damage done to it already. a fight between one of those 3 sections and a defiant would be a good close fight i bet.
its a corvette that can stand up to a 80 year old former capital ship/former heavy cruisers/current light cruiser. that's impressive for what it is, but its little more then a yippy little dog to anything modern and reasonably sized. but what ever is fan favorite is most powerful in game, with the exception of the akira. if they really wanted to be accurate, their wouldn't even be high tier escorts, and the galaxy and nebula would be alone at top tier.
the +1 akira's console is a point defense system, when active its a turret with a 360 degree auto targeting scatter volley that does triple damage to spam, but will shoot anything.
