You can choose to sci-focus a BoP, but that doesn't make it a sci ship. It's a BoP with sci abilities loaded on it.

Vo'Quv screams sci. Sure, an eng will do fine in it, but she is a sci boat. Kar'Fi is just a beast for anybody, but it certainly has a Sci slant.

Edit: And so far as sci abilites being not good, you obviously haven't see the difference a good debuff sci makes in a situaion like Hive Onslaught... Of course, it becomes team dependant. My debuffs are only worth it if I have a team that can bring the DPS to go with it. Most of the time I cruise about as DPS sci, which while maybe not quite as high as a tac/escort, I'm right up there and bringing a full complement of sci goodies as wel.

Sci isn't bad, its just highly situational and most people do not appreciate what debuffs bring to a team. If it doesn't translate directly into personal DPS many players just pretend it doesn't exist.
