C&C ship or armored escort for VIP's   be it smuggling out VIP or transporting diplomats

I dough most of VIP(s) will be willing to be transported on a dirty military ship

it will also work okay for transporting goods and it's has the "hidden compartment" 

but being a connie you can probably swap out a lot of the interior and make it work for whatever you want

What role would a phoenix play in the org when there are so many other ships better suited to C&C?

Bigger doesn't = better 

The phoenix also have quite good stats

let's say we need to intercept few capital ships ... If we want to use our own capitals ships they would have to take the "long way around as they need the large jump points, and they might just be to slow

but a phoenix and a few retaliators would be able to intercept them by different and faster routes  ( medium jump points)

being medium makes you harder to hit i.e vs "bombers" and more maneuverable, you wont need to find 20 crew members and make sure they are all in the same system 

just because we have a ton of capital ship doesn't mean we "fleet ops" want to resources 

also the bigger the ship(s) the harder it will to "hide your footprint"  and so on

I will share my Phoenix idea even though I wanted mine to be unique. My thinking is that the large power plant would be a great platform to install EWAR terminals, EWAR weaponry, and anti-EWAR systems. However I also think that with all these systems the Phoenix could also be a great platform to also install enhanced scanners, sensors and communication arrays making it great for C&C. So my overall goal is to have an EWAR/C&C Phoenix.

Since the Aquila's supposed to be the exploration variant, I'd put the Phoenix as the T&I VIP/passenger transport ship.  Granted, you could possibly rig it to function however, but at the end of the day, its base function seems centered around the transportation of important persons.

It could also technically count as a flying apartment space, similar in function, yet bigger and badder than the Mustang Beta.  I don't know where we qualify flying apartment space ships.

I see the Phoenix as a Jack of all Trades.  Though with the default load out and an installed C&C module it would excel at leading a squadron of fighters/attack craft.  I love the load out, not in love with the internal look, I like my ships to be grittier.

In my opinion Phoenix would better be a T&I ship. However if you really want to discover new things in space and be in a luxurious ship at the same time, Phoenix would be a good Exploration ship as well. Now it's up to you, bro. :D
