Balance is when everything ends in a stalemate. If one class is able to overpower the other, then its not balanced.
I completely agree. As a matter of STO history, zombie cruisers used to be a PVP nuisance. They were virtually unkillable without coordinated sub-nuc's. This ultimately drew the attention of Cryptic's Dev's, and the results are what we now see today.
I think cruisers can be given a little more maneuverability to make them more combat-capable. Beam arrays can also have their excessive power drain issues addressed. These two changes will bring the cruiser more in-line with the escort without sacrificing ship parity since escorts will remain STO's primary damage dealer.
