Did I not ask not to be flamed and ask that you look at the merits of the ship rather than reject it outright?
Many people like the Niagra, Freedom, and Challenger classes even though I find them to be hideous. I will not dash their hopes by rejecting them outright. As for the Yeager, consider if the radier boy pylons were upswepted instead of downswept. Aind windows in the secondary hull. Would it not then look more like a standard Federation ship?
Why do you think this ship should be included at Tier 4 for no real reason? No other Tier or ship type gets two choices except for Tier 5.
Because I don't like the Defiant. If I spec for an escort, then I am stuck with it for one full rank. At Tier 5, I have the choice between three. Also, Tier 3 has Two Curisers and two Science ships. Arguably, there is an additional escort, but it is in fact a varient of the standard escort (and an extra power due to the ensign slot being upgraded to Lt.)

Was it not seen until season 6, when the Dominion War was in full swing? Also, it is not that I want to fly an Intrepid like an escort. I just want a different ship than the Defiant. The Yeager varient seemed to fit the bill. I would be satisfied if the New Orleans class was an optional tier 4 ship, but I'm sure there are people who insist that it should be elsewhere.
