Nova-class. Small ship, small crew, investigating newly-discovered worlds and various astronomical phenomena. Exactly my speed.

Excelsior. I'd put those AA batteries back wherever Scotty took them out and try that transwarp drive for real!

Oberth. That way I'd get the mundane assignments and be relatively safe.
Of course, the few times we've seen the Oberth class has involved catastrophic failure in one way or another, so at least I'll go out with a bang.

Galaxy class definitely, best at everything. Next would be the Nebula, Excelsior, Ambassador, Sovereign, Intrepid, Akira. Last would be Defiant, worst at everything.

Re: Which ship if you were captain?

Since I have a science / research background in RL, I would choose a Nova Class and go on specialist research missions preferably stellar cartography and exogeology. I'd take a good medical team too, given you never know what sort of critters and microbes are out there on uncharted, far-flung worlds.

That looks really off-balance with the nacelles so far back.

I guess it might balance out if the front end is just as heavy as the back end, maybe.

They're as about as far back as on the Excelsior. Besides, when do you put ships on a balance beam?
