Re: Purposing Federation Ships During the Dominion War

so having the ability to fire many arrays at the same time is clearly a sign of power
Naah. All beams are not created equal, or a Danube class runabout (with something like half a dozen confirmed and half a dozen suspected phaser emitters) would seriously outgun an Akira (with indeed just three known strips).

The Voyager is a small ship, so odds are that her phasers are also small...

the Uss Defiant survived against a relatively stronger overall vessel like the Neg'hvar or Dominion warships thanks to its speed.
...Which was established to be less than that of other Starfleet vessels!

The Defiant didn't really get hit less than other ship types. She just shrugged off the hits when they fell.

The Ent-E suffered large amount of beating at the hands of the Scimitar and its shields were durable,just count how many torpedoes and disruptor blast the shields survived that was impressive
Compared to what? Kirk's old ship was basically immune to a similar rate of fire in "Errand of Mercy". Picard's first Enterprise had her shields fall down to X percent often enough, but basically never had them collapse altogether piecemeal the way the bow and then the ventral shields of the E-E did.

the same for Voyager against relatively stronger vessels.
The Voyager operated against a different set of vessels from any other Starfleet combatant, so comparisons are basically impossible to make.

i also want to add that the Intrepid has multi-spectrum shielding stated in season 6 of Voyager and multi-phasic as well stated in season 2,that type of shielding greatly improved performance in battles.
In what observable way? And what makes you think any old Miranda would not have the exact same sort of shielding?
