As you look at this idea of changing the Klingon ships?
Transfer Raptors in the range of free research ships, with a corresponding change in the inner parts. A BoP transferred to the line escorts leaving only 1-2 universal seats 2 level. And place of 3-4 levels by making tactical.
Actually this is some justification. In the first, Klingon have not free line of pure Sci ships and Gorns Sci only for money. Second, BoP revised steel just minimal crew (30-100) and hull with shield for scientific or engineering class ship, as well as very good maneuverability, Perfect pure Escort ship.
ps All this would better balance the Klingon line of ships.
