On escorts, I gotta throw a vote to the simple Patrol Escort. It doesn't have any of the fancy features of the Defiant or Armitage or MVAE, but it doesn't have any of their weaknesses or quirks either. Its just rock solid, easy to use, and I know I can always count on it.

For the same reasons I fall back on the Patrol Escort, for cruisers I go with the Star Cruiser (though use the Mirror version to get the Sovreign style). All the C-store cruisers are 'better,' but the Star Cruiser just plain works. Science ships, I gotta go with the Mirror DSSV, where you get the engineer ensign but Recon Sci looks and mobility for a wonderful ship.

Then Klingon side, the only choice is the Bird Of Prey. It can't tank and it can't spit out fighters, but it can rock as an escort or a sci ship or all kinds of hybrid combos, and with that speed and the battle cloak its just plain FUN to fly. There are fancier ships for specific purposes, but I just can't imagine not hanging on to a BoP in reserve.
