This is a terrible idea, you could never balance the different roles/classes/ship types.

The Escort will always do the most damage.

What about the Cruiser-captain who is tanking, drawing all the Fire so the escorts stay alive? He doesm't deal as much damage himself, but he's just a important. How would you measure his contribution?

What about the sic-captain? He's healing and buffing the teammates, debuffing enemies, controlling the battlefield with "gravity well" to draw all enemies to one place, so the escorts can hit them all at once with cannon-spread.
His own DPS is minimal, most of his skills will make the teammates more efficient.
How could you possibly measure that contribution?

It just can't be done.
