Aye, an escort takes finess and skill to pilot. Science and cruisers are aimed at wearing down your enemy

Escorts are aimed at hitting hard and fast, killing them in the first volley or getting out of harms way for the next run.

If you want the best of both worlds, high hull and good maneuverability, then science ships are for you.
The nebula makes a fine tac sci ship thanks to its universal boff slot
