Cruisers can kill anything an escort can. The difference is that it takes a cruiser much longer to do it. This is of course not news to anyone. Timed missions don't do cruisers any favors. Cruisers can go toe to toe with an enemy for days, problem is you don't have days because the mission clock is going tick...tick...tick. Meanwhile the escorts are darting about killing everything in sight. I can see where cruiser skippers get the feeling that they're underpowered. Cruisers aren't underpowered...it's just that so many missions in STO depend on killing the enemy as fast as possible and that's not the cruiser's strong suit. It's not cruisers that need an overhaul...it's the missions.
