Thanks for all of the excellent feedback!

Lots of great ideas here. I think I'm going to try out each ship in turn once I hit cap on that character and see which meshes best.

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.
I enjoyed the mogai when I was leveling my Rom Engineer. I eventually settled on the D'deridex, not because he was an engineer, but becaues I've loved that ship since seeing it in TNG.

I don't really try to match character class with ship but sometimes it happens. For the longest time I had my Fed Engineer in a science vessel and I loved it, but I loved the playstyle of the assault cruiser more; he just happened to BE an engineer. It's funny because I generally gravitate toward science powers. I love Gravity Well.

For some reason I just can't get into the Ha'nom and I want to find another option that still has some science kick to it. This character just happens to be a science officer, I like science powers; which is funny because my engineer's ship only has a Lt Science slot.. so I'm constantly looking for gravity well and remembering it doesn't have it lol.

I wanted to play science but I also don't care for the hanom.
I thought it and the T'varo looked like it might be. I especially like the Dhelan now that I've discovered it has different wing customizations. I honestly never really messed with ship appearance until I get to T5, I forget why I was even doing it but I found it has single wing options and I think it looks pretty awesome. Kind of like a precursor to the Mogai.
