Seen throughout TNG, the Vor'Cha seems to be a high-tech derivative of the D-7 and K'T'Inga classes. The layout is pretty much the same, although the connecting neck is somewhat thicker. I've rated it as beating the Galaxy in terms of beam firepower, armour, and manoeuvrability while rating the Galaxy as having an edge in the other areas, most notably in torpedo firepower because of my assumption of the superiority of the Federations burst fire torpedo tubes.

The assumption of a slightly troubled development for this ship stems from the apparently high rate at which Starfleet churns out new designs compared to their adversaries or allies. Given this, it seems to me that people like the Klingons must have a lot of trouble fielding a ship to match Starfleets latest, when Starfleets latest changes every few months!
