PvE: It works just fine.
PvP: You'll be the squishiest of the cruisers, and since you'll likely pick the "DPS Cruiser" (ie Excelsior), which is reasonably squishy too, this won't be helped. The extra damage is of some merit, but without focusing on cross-healing you'll more often than not be a liability to the team.
Advice: Try the retro-fit enterprise, it's sturdier and if spec'd with dual beam banks can deliver a decent punch in escort mode (ie with the saucer off) (Should also work well with regular cannons and turrets with rapid fire) - it'll just suck to not have use of full impulse or if you die, having the damn saucer back on.
