Loving STO, but...

...what's with all the 'I want everything and nobody else should have anything!' threads?
That's not just the OP, btw. I've noticed it in almost every damn thread, it's a wonder the Devs haven't given up in disgust at the playerbase.
Back to the thread though, I don't see the problem at all. If you want to be more DPS go grab an escort from ship requisitions, it's not that difficult, or if you want your cruiser class to do more damage learn to adapt your playstyle/consoles/loadout, but you're going to have to accept that making a ship that does absolutely everything will REALLY screw the balance.
Personally, I love the escort DPS ability, but I've stopped using my escort because having all the firepower in the world doesn't mean anything when you spend half the STF on res timer, (and yet I don't see escort player crying in the forum threatening to ragequit if they don't get the same resilience as the cruisers) so I changed from an escort TO a cruiser. At first I thought I'd have to resign myself to doing minimal damage but instead of throwing a tantrum at the Devs I changed my playstyle/loadout and now my cruiser actually outperforms my escort in every field!
My point is this, no one ship class is better than any other in my experience, it's just a matter of finding one that suits your playstyle and then modifying it to compliment the goal you're aiming for, oh, and also learn to accept that you can't have everything your own way, trust me, you'll feel better when you stop sweating over the inconsequential stuff.
