Inexperience has a significant effect. What you want to do is to get to a point where you can balance out holding agro, survivability, and damage dealing. My own cruiser tends to be the least survivable it needs to be while still managing to hold agro, everything else goes into DPSing. Unless its an emergency I always keep my weapon power maxed out.
