Off the top of my head, I'd at least ditch the engines for a borg engine. That'll give you a good set bonus, and the third omega set bonus is blah. Also, get rid of the TT2, that serves no purpose. An AP:B would be a good fit for that slot. Drop the first two engineering powers, and instead roll with EP2S 1 and 2, then switch out Engi Team II for Aux2Sif or Reverse Shield Polarity (or, EP2W1, and EP2S 2 and 3). Also, I'd get rid of Repulsors and use Transfer Shield Strength II. That'll make your escort much more survivable without losing any damage. plus, you'll have up a ~30% shield damage resistance mod, which will make you survive against those raptors and negg'ies.
Unfortunately, you're flying the HEC as a cannonboat, and while I'd personally fly it with a torp to utilize that 3rd ensign slot, I know people fly it exceptionally well by simply ignoring it. So that's all I have to say about that.
