Yea... Cruisers focus more on survivability through hull strength and heals, where Sci ships focus on defubb/buffs and shield heals.

Escorts are pure DPS.

Edit: If you know other MMO's or RP games, think of it like this:

Cruisers/Eng: Serve as tanks

Sci: Serves as wizards

Escort/Tac: Assasins/Offensive.
