This is true.

This is also however a part of why people think Escorts are 'as survivable' as Cruisers.

If you really go to town and build a selfish turtle build, the Escort does not really come close - of course that makes no sense since the other team can farm your friends for kills instead.

This is the better question.

The reason this question doesn't get asked as much is because a lot of people probabbly just want to kirk it out in their Cruiser.

If Cruiser Pilots actually asked themselves the hard question about performing their main role, and answered it honestly we'd see a lot less ire about APO/DHCs, and more threads about hybrid sci ships/carriers capable of slotting multiple high level Eng stations.
