Not entirely true. Its the way this game is built. Engineers don't have a purpose, because there is no need for them. There is no real need for a tank which is the main role of the Engineer in this game. not to mention it is almost impossible to fill the role 100%. no threat gen skills like seen in other MMOs. there are the new consoles, but even then escorts will steal argo.
This game is mainly about killing as fast as you can, there is no strategy. Hence why you just mind as well play TAC. Tacs in the game's current form as the most versatile career to play. you can put them in cruisers and get all the benefits of the tank with the extra dmg boost, same with sci ships. Sci career is just as broken, there are no real need for them outside PVP.
As far as ground goes, Engi's do help sometimes, but its still about killing things as fast as possible and moving on to the next area/objective.
