For flat out damage output, the Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit is king. That's just what happens when you have 5 tactical consoles and 8 tactical boff powers. There is no "best" escort or "best" anything though. Depends on what you want to do. Among escorts, the Steamrunner is arguably the tankiest, the MVAE lets you play around with some science debuff/cc fun, and the Armitage gives you access to a variety of carrier pets that either add to your DPS or provide other effects (like tractors). I even have an Excelsior set up with single cannons and turrets just for if I get sick of flying escorts. Don't be afraid to change up your build or playstyle, keeps the game fresh and fun.
