That's the problem with ESTF - the optionals are geared toward high DPS

I can handle 3 probes with my Fleet excel eng - but it's tough - I don't have the speed or dps to handle a cube, gens,trans and get back to probes in time to make sure they don't get through.

However, I can take a whole gate down while hanging around inside it at point blank range without ever dropping below 90% hull.

So should I be forced to change to a escort and tac just to play STF?
If you wish to carry bad PuGs to victory then yes. At least the warship/escort part until Cryptic decides to re-balance the game anyway.

I personally love the steamrunner on my Eng, and the Akira on my other.
STO's F2P is basically an inferior experience for the masses at no cost being subsidized by a handful of whales seeking whatever it is that motivates them to spend hundreds if not thousands on a game.
