So, I'm in the process of getting a skills reset so I can properly sort myself out. But my question here is about ships.

I play an engineer, but am currently using the Tier 2 Science ship. I picked it because I liked the look, but now I have learnt to love the ability to target sub systems.

Does my class make an impact on my ship? Should I leave these awesome ships to the science officers and get myself an engineer ship? Am I ok to be using this ship type while not being a science officer?

Any comments are appretiated.
I found hybrids, (a tac in a science vessel is a hybrid), to be very viable in PvE even on higher difficulty settings. Hybrids really don't show too much limitation till you get to high end PvP. That is when you have to find someone to train your BOs in the best skills for your ship if you mix and match careers and ships. Where a matched ship and career can train and respec to train their BOs for the task themselves.
