i make up for my lack of tankiness by being an engineer and having overall more tanking powers than someone else.
in the end you will have limited BO engineer slots and rank stations but plenty of tactical BO powers.
do the math. so i knew engineer needed a boost in terms of clickable powers so i chose that career.
Except minor things like attack pattern alpha and fire on my mark. Good luck in fleet actions end game when you dont get a group slot cuz your a escort with subpar dps.
