While the Destiny class  of battlecruiser does resemble the Dragon class of  battleship. Like most battlecruises it  does not have the armor of a battleship, or all the armament.  This gives the class more maneuverability than the Dragon or Huron Class  battleships which it shares components of. One of the drawbacks to the Destiny Classes smaller hull is that it only has the space for 3 of the type 24 military fusion reactors standard to the larger ships of the fleet limiting the weapons it can effectively power. Proteus ship yards took all the lessons learned from the early Black Panther class destroyer and the older Dagger class battlecruiser and integrated it into the Destiny class so it is definitely able to holds its own in a fight. Should it sustain damage it can be quickly repaired due to the sharing of components of of other classes. Proteus designs also integrated an ingenious shield emitter design into the Indomitable, Sterling, and Destiny classes. While Proteus was ingenious they could not seem to get the new shields to work on their larger battleships  and carriers.

 

The new shield emitters would rise up 50 meters out of the hull and would provide a second outer energy shield to support the ships standard shields. With adequate power ships with this shield modification could extend the shield out 200 meters from their hull of us the shields to surround other ships in need of protection. The shield feature allowed these ships to stay in the fight longer and take hits that would knock out a ship of their class. This modification allowed the ship to stay in the fight longer and screen the larger ships more effectively.
