It's a nice enough ship, but like it's already been said, not really worth it.
It's biggest pitfall is probably simply that it only has 9 console slots, which puts it behind from the start. The Tac/Reg mode is nice, but doesn't really make up for the lost slot compared to fleet ships, especially not when the abilities have a 5 minute cooldown. I use it on my Engies since Cruisers are generally fairly underwhelming when it comes to getting the optional on STFs. But there isn't really anything that it can do, that a Patrol/Blockade/whatever they'll call it tomorrow Escort can do. Or any other escort.
Given that it effectively costs at least $200, the ship alone just isn't worth it. If it's all you're looking at getting from lifetime, then I suggest finding something else. If it's just going to be icing on the cake, and something that you won't be horribly disappointed with when they most likely release a 10 console version of the heavy destroyers later, then yeah, it's worth it.
