Sure, you can do this if you want, but I would strongly advise against this. The Varanus is part of what I prefer to call the Sci/eng group. In other words, due to having only 2 tac consoles, your damage is going to be severely gimped as compared to an equivalent escort or even a battlecruiser. Tac Initiative is also only going to work on two tac Boff abilities, which is very limited.

Having said that, if you want to do damage with sci skills, high spec in Particle Generators along with abilities dependent on this such as Grav Well, Tractor Beam Repulsors and Photonic Shockwave are a must.
