It's possible to setup for both an Escort and a Cruiser (except for Tanking: you want Threat Control on a Cruiser, but it's usually counterproductive on an Escort) but Science ships are another story. At a minimum, you'll likely want "Particle Generators" on a Sci to increase Damage from the likes of Gravity Well and PSW - this will be wasted on a Cruiser or Escort.
A build like
is probably as close as you're going to get to a workable setup for all three ships - but bear in mind that without "Threat Control" you won't be tanking on the Cruiser, so expect a few annoyed teammates at endgame.
If you are wanting to Tank as a Tac Captain in a cruiser.... pick up Torp Spread 2 or 3 and Beam Fire at Will 2 or 3.... fire them at the same time if possible... this usually brings a lot of aggro your way even though your Threat Control is lower due to you normally flying escorts.
I tank Dreadnoughts and Cubes all the time in my Ody as a Tac Captain.
