If you cant do damage on the fleet excel, you wont do significantly more with a escort. Granted you will do more, but in comparison to a normal escort (with an eng-captain), it will be near nothing. I cant stand "Cruisers are up, escorts are op"-talk, because it simply isnt true. You can do damage with every kind of ship -even sci, its just a different road. While escorts do damage with their tac-skill, cruisers buff themselves with their engineering skills and support that with their tac-skills.
If I pushed my ship to the limit - yes then I should be "able" to do this. As a point and click mouse player it's harder. I don't like having to keep changing things up for the 1 STF - that I play per day.

Sure i could load her with cannons - CRF - or all beams with duals up front - constantly buffing and blasting and running around like a wild man - i can carry 2 duals up front - hit EPtw2, ATb2, ept, Nadion - Hit BO3 and those beams will cut through anything - i can dump weapons batterys and aux batteries like they were going out of style - i can use engine buffs and stuff to go faster.

The question is Why?? Why should i be doing the work of 2 or 3 players?
