cruisers are underpowered...

IMHO, it's not so much that Cruisers are UP - is that it's a case that Engineering Ensign BOFF ability selection is so bad in comparison to Tactical and Science Ensign BOFF ability selection.
Tac: 9 abilities in 3 different CD groups.
Sci: 8 abilities in 7 different CD groups.
Eng: 5 abilities in 2 different CD groups where 4 of the 5 abilities are in the same CD group.
This creates an issue right from the start for a ship that's going to mainly have Eng BOFFs.
Address that issue - bring Ensign Engineering BOFFs in line with the rest and see how it goes from there. Changing anything else before that, could simply result in other problems down the line...
