It's excellent for tanking/healing, but it's too slow to use anything but beams really, and isn't geared towards DPS as such. It's not that much tougher than a Negh'var, but because it has a science ensign slot instead of engineering, you're less likely to have conflicting cooldowns on your Bof powers. I used the Negh'var because it could mount cannons, cloak, and was tough as nails, but that was with my tac officer. For a healer/tank I think the Orion cruiser edges it slightly in terms of ability.
