Can't you go escort now and then switch to cruiser at a later rank? I like the Lieutenant Commander cruisers, (I currently have one with my engineering character) but I'm looking forward to the later cruisers. In fact, I almost wish I'd gone escort for my Lieutenant Commander ship. Escorts have weaker hulls but better turn rates and you can equip pulse phaser weapons on them. Pulse phaser weapons have narrow firing arcs but they significantly shorten a battle (I have some on my Light Cruiser for my science lieutenant character.)
