Sure it is effective in PVE. It does have escort firepower. You do lose out on a console if you keep the special abilities.

The Tachyon ability is fully affected by doffs that affect Tachyon Beams or Deflector abilities. So you may have it available more often, or you may use it as a snare.

It is an escort style ship that you can fit out with high levels of science or engineering, in almost the same manner as a Bird of Prey. And it has Battle Cloak like a Bird of Prey.

But it has 4 tactical consoles, and Ablative Armor can boost the hull to 53k. Birds of Prey don't have that.
