It'd still be an escort at heart, but with more cruiser-centric features. Slower and less mobile then most of the escorts, but still faster and more maneuverable then cruisers. A Panzerschiffe, if you will.
That's not going to do anything very well at all.
You propose an escort without access to the game's highest damage weapons, which lacks the hull of a cruiser, and does not possess the shield strength of a Science vessel?
A "Jack of all trades, master of none" in a competitive setting will be completely trounced.
