No it wouldn't, not at all.

For starters a Lt Cmdr tactical station will give you access to Attack Pattern Omega, one of the best BOff tanking powers in the game outside of RSP. Losing one Lt Cmdr engineering power is not going to hurt the ship, especially compared to the benefits it'll bring.

In PvE it'll mean easy chaining of Cannon Rapid Fire with no loss in tanking (especially since an escort can tank fire from eliteSTF NPCs using only three engineering powers). In PvP it'll mean increased tankiness if you take Attack Pattern Delta (increased damage resist) and Attack Pattern Omega (increased bonus defense, speed, turnrate, damage resist, breaking holds and defending against stuns).
