A Science ship isn't the same as an Escort or even a Cruiser so it's unreasonable to expect them to act the same way. Fly the ship that suits your style. Build the ship that works for you. Science powers are actually incredibly potent if you build it and use it right. In PvP, the skills available to Science ships are incredible for creating opportunities or exploiting a weakness. If this wasn't an MMO then I might feel bad for a solo scientist but there are plenty of people online. Team up, perfect a build, and unleash the mad scientist within!
Science consoles are underwhelming but that's got more to do with Science powers themselves being incredibly strong with just Aux power. If they brought the potency down a bit and then boosted the consoles they could fix this but I digress.
Also, while there are lots of reasons to pick a specific ship, don't discount the impact that iconic ships have on the decision making process.
