So, you tried to fly a "cruiser-ish" escort like a science ship.
I can see how that might take some getting used to, so take it from an escort-flying tac: Yes, we get blown up a lot more than other ship archetypes.

Me, I like the Breen ship. Tested it out today and was quite satisfied with killspeed and survivability. Then, after the fifth or so mission, I noticed I had been flying without a powersetting the whole time.
So yeah, definitely packs a punch.
