Science officers in Escorts are a beautiful thing, despite what most people will think. Most Science Captain skills have a 90 degree firing arc. Escorts, as everyone will probably know, are the greatest turning ships out of any Starship type in the Federation (shuttles excluded, of course). With an Escort's ability to "turn and burn", as I call it, You can swivel around, pop your buffs and unload your cannons, then use your Subnucleonic Beam to un-buff your enemy and rip them to shreds. Put the right equipment in, and an escort can very easily be an ideal science ship.
