I have freaking tanked as a Tactical in a cruiser because of the bridge officers that I have.

does anyone else see this?

does anyone else see the distinction between the classes just go away because of the bridge officers? it basically takes away the science officers job, the Engineers don't have enough threat as is so either way they can't tank properly.
I think it's cool. My fed engi fly an escort, my KDF engi fly a carrier.
I don't see the problem.
