Don't get me wrong, DPS is fine and all... But there are clearly people out there with cruiser builds they feel are really good for what they do.
Here's my guess: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RuleOfCool

In other words, I believe many people prefer a cool Star Trek ship over a WW2 fighter plane that poses as a Star Trek ship, even when they feel the cool ship is less capable.

Selecting a ship primarily out of aesthetics isn't something the game at large punishes... except for the Elite STF's, you can get by with any ship practically anywhere. You will be a lot faster with an escort, though.
