I've heard good things on the Fleet Assault Cruiser from a couple friends who own one.

Honestly, the normal Assault and Star Cruisers (including mirror versions) at the RA level can be an excellent introductory means of getting used to Fed cruisers.

I personally LOVE my D'kora. It's got everything a cruiser could want: Good turn, good DPS, able to equip cannons, still very good hull and shields, excellent BOFF layout (and still tac-heavy like you are wanting).

There are a lot of good choices, though I personally recommend the Excelsior/Fleet Excelsior. While it does have an extra, annoying Ensign Engineer, that's a very minor complaint as the ship runs fantastically otherwise.
