When you look at it in the front, it looks almost like a bird.

That was the purpose of its design. To be a bird of prey

The ultimate bunker buster from the mighty Star Empire. Massive forwards facing weapons arrays, shielding and top of the line cloaks not something you want to see decloaking on your tail.

The only issue I have with this ship is the lack of rear mounted weapons, it turns to slow to be so forward heavy in weapons, but I think this flaw came form the fact the Romulans like the klingons always preferred to put their guns on the front and could get away with it as their ships where agile, this however was not.

Its funny but if you think about it, the weaponry is very two dimensional, i.e. grouped to the fore etc, what about above and below?
To paraphrase what Spock said in The Wrath of Khan "(their) thinking is two dimensional"!

Aye it is the major flaw of this ship, still the great strength of these vessels shows in a fleet engagement, all that firepower cuts through whatever is in front it like butter.

Cover it than with 2 more agile ships and you got yourself a good old bomber which needs some fighter escort :)

I do however doubt they be making anything like this again, to many downsides, more likely to see them going with smaller more agile vessels or better all around armament.
