Yeah, cruisers (or at least the better cruisers, with the right gear and duty officers) can easily compare with or even outdamage escorts, especially over longer-term engagements or in situations where an escort can't sit still pointing at a target. They're really, really more than fine. And the type of captain doesn't really matter, and engineer is the most overpowered for space PVE right now, just due to the sheer direct versatility of their skills; good power management accomplishes way more than many people realize.

If anything it's just science vessels that are uselessly weak right now, between science skills being nerfed into the ground ages ago, the limited weapon slots and selection, and the fact carriers basically do everything they can but better (except turn anyway...)
