Personally I think it's best to get away from the tank/heal/DPS concept when you're playing STO. The three classic roles are really fuzzy in STO, especially in space, and unlike a lot of other MMOs that blur the role lines (like having a tank class that sacrifices durability for DPS), the mixed setups aren't marginalized for the sake of challenging the pure setups, and aren't forced to specialize in a single role to be viable.

Honestly, the only combination I couldn't get into was Tac/science. It's not a bad setup (there's a few threads down in the shipyards about making it work), just counter intuitive. I felt like I was working against myself in both directions with it.
