Should Escort Captain Be a Tac Officer?

I've used engineering and Tac in escorts. I think the primary choice in which ship to use is not what class you are but you're playing style. I find escorts good for driving straight at an enemy, taking the lead out and then pushing as much damage as possible to the survivors. Cruisers, on the other hand..tend to wade right into the middle, delivering broadsides left and right and generally mocking enemy fire for the confetti it is.
I've preferred escorts, but occasionally got the urge just to warp into SB2 with a cruiser just to laugh at the poor little birds of prey as they failed to dent my shields deeply enough
