Sto is a very different game, there isn't any tanks, like in traditional MMOs.
But as a general rule of thumb, if there had to be tanks Engineers are the best survivability wise. Tac are dps related, sci is shield heals and crowd control.

But Stos mechanic is different, as any captain can fly any ship.
A Tac can fly a cruiser or even a carrier just won't be as tough as an engineer doing it, just like a sci can fly an escort but arguably won't do as much dps as the Tac.
No, not a troll. Just new to the game is all. Still learning how it all works.

As to the rest of your post, how then does group space combat work? Just coordinate for focus fire? Who then takes the other ships to keep them from smashing on the escorts as they are weaker in the survivability dep?
