As an Engineering Officer, I found escorts to be moderately survivable. Mostly because my innate powers made up for the lack of a second engineer Bridge Officer. Between me and the ONE engineer on board (with a lot of changing of power settings in the mdidle of battle) we managed to keep the ship in one piece while doing monstrous damage to enemies.

I had to spec specifically for the weapons I was using, and I had two Tactical Bridge Officers that I groomed JUST for the escort, but it was a mean little ship.

Ultimately, do whatever works for your playstyle, that was just my experience.
