The best role for a cruiser doing damage is 8 beams. Cruisers can not do burst damage, so aside from good power management to weapons (8 beams drain a massive amount of power), youre pretty much capped out at that.

Yes, you could do cannons on a cruiser, but an escort simply fulfills that role better. A single Lt tact is not enough to do anything worthwhile.
