Unfortunately Engineers don't synergize well with science ships. You'll neither have the added debuff and control that a Sci captain would to complement the ship, nor would you have a Tac captain's ability to buff damage on the science powers. For an engineer, you'd be better off sticking to a cruiser to fly a support/healer role, or an escort to strike a balance between damage and survivability. Considering your Eng captain has the ability to already heal his ship considerably, you should probably look at the more fragile but high damage escorts like the Fleet Defiant or the Andorian ship. Your Eng captain should be able to keep them alive, while their better inherent damage output will make up somewhat for your lack of damage buffing captain powers.
