Maybe it could be another ship that can use the Akira multi-torpedo console then. Short of that, a Lt Cmdr Tac slot would be enough. I do see this ship as predating the Akira in its role.
And yes, before the Steamrunner the Zephyr was in-game, so there's precedent for taking ships from that tier and redoing them as something else. Maybe the Norway could be the "Flat iron Escort"

Never liked the Norway, but I would like to see the New Orleans class someday.
For that matter, the other Wolf 359 kitbashes would be nice additions too. Not that they look good, because they don't, but I've seen enough good looking fan designs to know that it is certainly possible to make good looking Freedom style single nacelle, and Challenger style over and under configuration ships.
I would love the New Orleans class to be in game. As I said on another thread, the Cheyenne made it so the NO should get it's time to shine too. I love those ships from Wolf 359. It seems like a nice compact, medium sized ship and I like the unique designing of it. I want to explore the galaxy and destroy some Cardassians in it as much as my Galaxy or NX class.
