that is true for PVP, on the other hand it is of no concern when playing PVE content.

as i see it, aux2batt build is the way to go for the excelsior and ACR, the only difference is that the ACR can support a torpedo power (spread or high yield) for it's 180 degree torpedo. The excelsior instead can support an engineering team 1 which is usefull.

so, for PVE the ACR would be my choice (either beams or cannons)...for PVP the excelsior (with beams)
But i'm not sure if a cruiser is viable for team PVP for the DD slot, better have a heal cruiser at which the oddy is probably among the best choices.

personally i use a tac oddy with an engi captain for PVE exclusively, for me it represents a perfect combination of tankiness and DD, while the saucer separation gives very high manuverability.
