Depends on you plays style in the end.
Try an engineer alt and see if you enjoy it.
I enjoy my tact/cruiser so far. But I am only 27 and I haven't really done any group stuff much. As for an although, I am f2p, so no real extra slot other than a Klingon ATM. I guess I could try it, but I'd rather play fed.
Then what should I gear for tanking? I mean what type of weapons and such.
I mean for space, ground I wouldn't mind dpsing as I have noticed I am too squishy for ground combat tanking.
