I don't think cruisers are underpowered in general. Okay the old assault cruiser and star cruisers were a bit lacking but the newer hulls certainly aren't.

A cruiser will usually not outdamage an escort ship, as least on single targets, but in a target rich environment they are not that far behind in total numbers. The strength of cruisers is simply that they not only deal some damage but unlike escorts, can also withstand some punishment.
