Science ships - feels like they got shafted.

At the moment there is no need for science or cruisers in fleet actions - if you want to do lots of fleet actions and want to get decent prizes your going to need to get an Esort.
It's not because Escorts shouldn't be at the top for DPS: it's because It doesn't cost anything to die and only DPS counts towards the score - as you said healing, bluffing / debluffing, absorbing damage don't count towards anything. It's a bad design problem and won't change till Cryptic do something about it.
In the meantime; the only solution is to make friends with a lot of escorts that are willing to team up and share some of the loot with you. Of course it's easier said then done.
