I am trying depserately to figure out how to accomplish that in this setting.. Star trek has always had a better story than those games mentioned above and its awesome being a part of it.
a week or two kiala posted that she suggests engineer for a healer type. personally I believe a science type makes a good healer if not better. my build I just posted is pretty healer oriented. if you wanted even more healing you can replace the two tier 3s with shield transfer (even though it's regarded as an underpowered skill) just to have even more healing.
when partying I generally rotate hazard/science on the tank to have a constant HoT and dmg resist buffs on him with a side effect of burst shield healing. in emergencies/after battle I do hazard/engineer to heal hull up for the next battle, which puts science on a cooldown. my current build doesn't have extend shields so I can only say you can save it for emergencies (like when you do engineer/hazard, use extend to make up for the shield heal loss)
for the high rank skills, viral or scramble are good choices to mitigate damage. piror for single targets, latter for groups
