You can do pretty good DPS though, with a ton more tank, in a tac oddysey or a fleet Excelsior.... It's too easy for tacs to get hung up on the idea that they must fly escorts with all the folks claiming crusiers can't compete, but in my fleet we've learned that cruisers can indeed compete, it just costs more to set them up to be optimal.
Oh and yes, I mainly use my 2 tacs (LB Romulan and a human, both feds), and I mainly fly cruisers and dreadnoughts. There are folks in my fleet happily doing 15k dps in dreadnoughts without too much effort. You don't need crowd control on them as the crowd is dead before it becomes a problem.
Cue folks flaming me for suggesting that escorts aren't the ultimate ships for tacs...
Shhh...your giving away the secret. They will nerf the dreadnought before to long...LOL!
I love the dread with 7 beams a blazing and frigates flying around spamming anti-proton sweeps...lol
