This is not true. I've seen plenty of cruisers tank well AND dish out some DPS (not as much as an escort or maybe a KDF battlecruiser, but still). You just have to get creative with your build and know when to activate skills, and you can't be afraid of speccing into your 1-2 offensive sci skills. Skill timing is an incredibly important feature that some players lack. Even I don't have it down all the time (especially when a nice overpowered fleet defiant is bearing down on me).
