No, no - you're spot on, sacrificing just a tiny bit dps and getting Emergency Power to Shields instead of to Weapons with an Eng captain works
, but your dps overall will be ~20% lower than a Tacs
(mostly due to not having his crazy damage bonus abilities, altho the system-power tricks an Engineer has help).
And now, come on - how many times has Miracle Worker saved your ship?
Most will admit to being saved by it a lot, regardless of the ship type they use, but few are as grateful as the Eng Escorts!
He's dead, Jim.
