I was watching DS9 and thinking about how weak in game the Galaxy Class is combat wise 1 lt tactical station. During the Dominion War from what we saw from fleet battles (season 5 onwards) not a single Galaxy Class was destroyed and they were the only other Federation ship onscreen shown to make a kill Defiant being the other one
The Captain Level Galaxy should have been the explorer/engineer ship and how the current retro fit is and the Retro should have been a Battleship with this lay out
Actually I fly either a defiant/sovereign/nebula/Prometheus/excelsior/galaxy x or a galaxy depending on my fancy. However I would love to fly the galaxy as my primary ship but she isn't tough enough tactically to stand up in pve with the other ships mentioned for my fighting style. The nebula out tanks the galaxy
Thing is, using your changes, the Galaxy would become a good tad stronger than it is currently, and as such would offset balance... PvE it dosen't matter much, and I would like to see the "strong ships become strong" again, but we have to think of the poor PvP'ers... They get so little already.
