Fleet Escort is actually an effective Tank/DPS hybrid if there ever was one in game.
Excelsiors and Galaxy-X are both lethal in the hands of a (competent) Tactical Officer. I'd steer clear of Star Cruisers as a Tactical personally however... Good ships, but there are better for you as the game's "DPS" profession. Better suited as an Engineer.
Depends on playstyle. Remember one fundamental thing above ANYTHING any of these other Captains try to tell you...
The ship doesn't make the captain. The captain makes the ship.
That said... choose what fits your style and roll with it. This game offers a tremendous amount of customization.
