The Breen ship is weak on engineering powers. It does not have three Lt. Cmdr powers, so your reply is fail.

And it's a ship you can only get at Christmas if you spend 25 days racing some npc. Not everyone is going to get one. And guess what? You can't get them again afterwards due to them being untradeable.

Actually I do think the Breen ship is ridiculously overpowered as a tactical ship, because it has a strong hull, high turn rate, strong shields, a big crew, and can use dual heavy cannons. But it's not quite as ridiculous as your idea for the Ambassador. At least the Breen ship has reasonable limits to what it can do.

A commander level engineer power on a cruiser is worth less than a lt. commander level science or tactical power on that same cruiser. A jack-of-all trades ship that can do three things very well is far more powerful than a specialist ship that can do one thing extremely well.

While I don't subscribe to the idea that the majority is always right, in this case the majority have the facts on their side.
