There are cruiser builds that work exceptionally well in a multitude of roles. They excel at total healing, they are fantastic tanks, and they can even do legitimate damage... But if you try and build them to do all 3 at once, or you pick the wrong platform or don't fully understand the game mechanics, you are going to be mediocre.
Generally I would agree with you, but I would say there is a "small" exception to this: The KDF Orion Pig Carrier. I'ts just a tanky cruiser with a hangar. It tanks like nobody's business and has 8 weapon slots. Add some advanced slavers and you have some good damage.
