In this magical, mysterious, fictional STO-verse, what ship would you fly if lockbox ships never existed?

Every other ship in the game exists, just no lockbox ones. So any standard ship, all the C-store ships, and all the current Fleet ships.

(By lockbox I mean: Lockbox drop ships, lobi-store ships, any DOFF pack drop ships, and any free 3rd-faction ships like the Corvette that we've gotten)

Fed tac: Andorian Escort, unchanged
Fed eng: No D'kora, so probably my Fleet Excelsior
Fed sci: Fleet Ambassador most likely, dedicated healer (No more Recluse for him)

KDF tac: Tac-Bortas, unchanged
KDF eng: Kamarag, unchanged
KDF sci: B'rel, unchanged

Rom tac: Scimitar, unchanged
Rom sci: T'varo, unchanged

(Yeah, don't own many lockbox ships, but I'm sure for many others it would be very different)

I have no lockbox ships, and I like it that way TBH. So no different.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

Were I still playing...

Fed Sci - Vesta (Target Subs+E Siphon, maybe a working Tyken's Rift drain boat with vanilla polaron weapons)

Fed Tac 1 - Fleet RSV (Transphasic/TBR boat, maybe a GW 3 now that a fix is in the works, heavy on the supplementary healing, natch)

Fed Tac 2 - Fleet Assault Cruiser (Aux2Bat Phaser CSV Boat w/ Wide-Angle quantum torp for further spam clearance)

KDF Tac 1 - Fleet Norgh (who the hell knows what weapons... probably vanilla Distruptors with transphasic cluster torp, EWP, and the upcoming revised GW 3)

Rom Sci 1 - Fleet Ha'pax or Fleet D'deridex or Tulwar Dreadnought. As a healer, maybe. Probably.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.

KDF Eng would likely go from JHEC to Fleet Kamarag.
KDF Tac would likely go from Chel Grett to Fleet Tor'Kaht (likely heading there anyway).
Fed Eng would likely go from Chel Grett to Fleet Assault instead of looking at the Monbosh.
Fed Tac would likely go from Risian Corvette to Fleet Patrol (likely heading there anyway).

The other five guys are flying non-Lockbox/Lobi/Event ships (even though they've all got access to the Risian and two of them have access to the Chel Grett).
Maal, Klingon, Mogh - Vegar, Orion, Marauder - R'ebel, Romulan, Haakona
Willard the Rat, Reman, F.T'varo - Rave, J.Trill, Kar'Fi - Mysk, Gorn, Varanus
Kopor, Nausicaan, Guramba - Nivuh, Ferasan, B'rel - Venit, Lethean, M.Qin

I don't fly any lockbox ships or even own one so I already fly a variety of excellent ships that regularly out class, out gun and out maneuver lock box ships...
