My answer would be:

Excelsior damage potential + Excelsior healing potential + Star cruiser science potential. Think about it:

Engineering:
Cmdr
Lt.

Tactical
Lt. Cmdr

Science
Lt.
Ensign

That's pretty close to being an overpowered combination of boffs. I'm kind of getting tired of people saying "you need DHC or your ship is useless as a combat boat". Good turning isn't only useful to keep your forward arc on target at all times. It's also good for evading hits and keeping your defense stat up.

By the way, have you tried the Galor with DBBs and beam overload 3? Or 7-8 arrays with fire at will? Sure the Excelsior can do that, but the Galor can also have attack pattern beta, tactical team, emergency power to weapons 3, directed energy modulation 3, torpedo spread and fire at will all going at once and turn into a DPS monster.
