I say yes. The advanced Plasma ray serves as an additional APB (with lengthy cd), which is obviously good on a carrier. I've gone all Romulan Plasma on mine, which is quite good in PvE.
Just one warning: the combination of Elite Scorps and Hyper Plasma tends to accidentally blow Generators unless you switch targets really early.
By the way, I think you can get away with running fewer defensive abilities. I'm running an engineer in a Recluse myself and tank tac cubes fine enough with a Tac in the Commander slot.
