According to Star Trek Online, a single Defiant can take out a Borg tactical cube, whereas a Galaxy cannot even punch through the shields of a low-end BoP without an assist from other vessels.
I don't think you're playing the Galaxy class right in STO.

(Also, why are you quoting yourself?)
I don't play STO at all; I'm not a fan of Asian grindfests. I'm going by STO's own forums, where there exists no small amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth about STO's Galaxy being a toothless tiger.

I quoted myself rather than spam the board with the same exact post.
Voyager had no trouble beating a Borg Tactical cube in the episode "Unimatrix 0".
The Intrepid class is like a smaller Galaxy class if you compare them. I always saw the Intrepid class as an economy version the of Galaxy class. Tactically speaking there is nothing an Intrepid can do that a Galaxy can't. The Intreprid is just newer.

A ship's performance in a videogame is not a good reference IMO. Neither is bringing in stats and or feats from comics and novels.
