I glanced at most of this and didn't see anyone else mention it, but if you want more firepower with Star Cruiser looks, you'll want to get the Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser. It has more Tactical console and BOff slots, which should help you rain a little more death. The drawback being you'll not have the slightly extra Science lean, and I'm not sure if that's something you wanted to keep or not.

If, however, you do want to keep the little bit of extra Science the Star Cruiser has, you'll definitely need to reconsider the whole "raining death" thing. The Star Cruiser is a support tank, not a death-dealing machine of unstoppable fury. You will, quite simply, never be able to more than moderately annoy high-level enemies. You can mitigate this a little as a Tac captain, of course, but not that much.

But my main advice is not to beat yourself up too much over mistakes. STO is a forgiving mistress. There's basically no content except for No Win Scenario, PVP, and Elite STF's that require you to be running ZOMG LEET gear to be effective. Don't worry too much about it, rebuild your EC with some SB24 runs and Tour the Universe. You'll be back on your feet in no time.
