I have an engineer flying an escort right now. I also use Red Matter, so I keep power levels up pretty high in general :p

However, I still like to use EPtS instead of weapons ESPECIALLY with an engineer.

I tried a defensive-heavy Bird of Prey on Tribble with an Engineer, and it was probably even better than running a normal escort due to its survivability. Not having the Tactical Captain skills will lower your DPS no matter what ship you fly, so I figure its better to focus on defense and stay alive with an Engineer captain in an Escort-class ship.
