You may be doing well at both, but with the layout you mentioned a Tac would do it even better. Which is why Sci are undervalued. Not only is shield draining via sci ineffective compared to energy weapon damage, the vast majority of pve HP is hull, and pvp targets are effectively immune to all of our flowcap and grav.

The trouble, with the sci debuffs - say you're flying an escort in your sci to bring some deeps - is that the increases in dps from your debuff may not actually compensate your team for the loss of a tac in the same ship. I suppose an escort with tractor and siphon as it's sole sci skills (at lt lev) is probably the best pve use of sci....but doesn't that leave a bad taste in your mouth?
