Ah, but of course, these "Retrofits" would not be actually of the Ambassador or Constitution class, but of classes of their own... I mean, there is the Exeter, the Vesper, etc.


That one, by the way, has a beautiful skin, but obviously much too small for a T5 cruiser.

As an escort, however...

Now you're trying to get out of it with a technicality, one that has no precedence in this game either.
Even the Akira retrofit still has the designation "escort" in it.

Besides if for example the Ambassador skin is among the ship class' retrofit your proposal is not going to work since it would violate the CBS directive as well.

And let's not forget even the tiny (214m) K't'inga was pressed into the cruiser category.

I have to LOL at the whole Miranda argument going on. I mean come on, those ships were just cannon fodder for the Breen/Jem Hadar in the Dominion War. Was watching some DS9 on Netflix last night and that entire battle it's funny how many Mirandas get one shotted and pinwheel off the screen in flames.

hate to tell you, in ds9 everything but the defiant gets 1 shotted and whirls around before exploding. DS9 = wtf we need shields for?! The space battles in the dominion wars didnt really do any justice to any of the ships and defiant just had plot armor.
