But it looks like you're talking about a duel scenario, in which case I'm going to have to say it's simply the better pilot wins.
Eng lacks everything..Whatever eng has, tac and sci have also, but NOT vice versa.
What can an eng pilot do to maximize his damage? APOIII and perhaps TT (which is insignificant), that's about it..
Tac captains have all those BOFF skills plus all their character specific skills which boost their damage sky high. In other words, if you take two ships with same consoles and weapons, the top damage of the tac captain is a LOT bigger than the one of the eng cap.
