Theres no starship tanking in the traditional sense. The most useful cruiser captains I've teamed with play it out like DnD clerics: throwing buffs and heals around while engaging the most heavily armed ships in the mob, while the rest of team takes out the smaller ones first. Healing and buffing actually does seem to draw aggro a lot, based on what I've seen. Bad news is that just like most of the game, the team window is frikking bugged and doesn't show all teammates shield status, so communication is key.
