There's another aspect to being a Tac captain that, as far as I can tell, doesn't apply to the other classes. Your Attack Pattern Alpha ability is boosted (rather substantially) by the Escort and Heavy Escort ship skills. Even if you're going into a cruiser, it would probably be to your benefit to get 5-6 ranks in each of those skills to boost your main damage buff. It'll also improve the power's turn-rate buff.
