Before the regent, there may have been some reason to make a fleet excelsior at some point.
But now with the Regent you will never see a fleet excelsior as that ship would step all over the market segment that would buy a Regent.

Also the idea that an ensign engi is useless will disappear as we see more pyro sci builds with the season 7 gear. In the Excel Retro vs a pyro orb weaver the only thing that lets my Excel win every time is I can choose to run a tac team or an engi team to focus on shields or hull. So vs a plasma dot build you can use the Large hull heal to stay ahead of their damage.
