Honestly, if you're looking for an easy fix to the escort vs cruiser thing when it comes to damage, just make cruisers have a special mod vs smaller ships. Anything that's not a cruiser, they do double damage to and take half damage from.
Bigger ships, more damage power, more resilience to smaller ships.
This can also be expanded upon in PVE and PVP. Even STFs, Borg cubes=Capital ships/Mobile space stations. Mod as necessary the damage values and damage resistances with both shields and hull. Remove the instant kills and make them durable as they should be with lethality in dps, rather than stupidly high instant kill strategies that works for nobody.
That would be good - I see escorts now in ESTF tanking all the time - they should be quick in and out straffing - but now many can take sustained fire.
As my last example of the Breen and the New Jem escort - there seems to be a "Escort Hull creep" going on in this game.
What's next a 40k escort?
