Are Cruisers OK for Tac Captains?

Hey guys. I'm a new starter looking at my LCDR promotion in the next day or so.
I've had a read of this thread because I've chosen the tactical route, and I'm looking at a possible cruiser or science vessel command. I'm probably not going to go the science route as I'd like to spend as much time on the Cruiser path as I can on the way to a Sovereign or Noble.
Reading replies on the first and last pages, is it fair to say that opinions on the Tac/Cruiser specification have reversed since the game came out? I'm getting two very different opinions... One of which is that the Tac/Cruiser is 'squishy' in PVP (which I have not yet ventured in to, but likely will when I hit a decent rank) and the other opinion being that it could well be a wolf in sheep's clothing, and will outplay a Tac/Escort on many ocassions.
This said, I'm not a fan of any of the full CDR-level cruisers, so I'll probably (briefly) slip back to an Escort in the Akira class before I advance to the Sovereign.
Bit of a zig-zagging career, I suppose, but I'm eager to hear opinions.
