Engineers are pretty solid in every way. In Space their abilities are straightforward and very effective at protecting you. On the ground their turrets are very strong (if a little time consuming to continually set up).
I don't know this for sure, but I think a lot of people are concerned about getting blown up in Space so they're hedging their bets by using Engineers. What I'd like to know is what kind of ship they're flying...
