I'll never understand why so many people insist on matching their ship type to their career choice, it's one of the worst possible ways to play IMO. I tend to pick a ship that doesnt match up to my career, so that the two complement one another. I.e. I play tacticals in science vessels or cruisers, engineers in escorts or science vessels, and science officers in escorts.

My romulan science captain runs a fleet mogai - it's essentially an escort as far as manuverability and weapons/tactical boffs go, but it's got nearly as much hull as a cruiser, a fairly high shield modifier, and a more engineering-oriented secondary boff layout. As far as I'm concerned it's one of the best ships in the game for a hybrid of survivability and damage output.
