Well, cruisers getting no reward or at least recognition, is exactly why I would like to see a new Engineer ability. I chose this one because on some level, cruisers are built for this, support roles, taking the heat off more "squishy" escorts while they do the heavy DPS. As it is right now, most decent escort pilots can make it through ESTF's without dying more than once, admittedly making this ability less needed. Having the ability available however, would hopefully give the devs a reason to make some NPC's stronger (not 1-shot insta-kill stronger) while making the mission(s) still achievable with a mixed team (eng, tac, sci) each having a purpose or usefulness.
