I see no reason to get any of the 3-packs. If you must get an Odyssey, then get the tactical variant. None of the 3-packs have a 3 piece set bonus worth losing 3 console slots over. As an Engineer, the best C-store cruiser you could get would be the Excelsior Retrofit. The Regent is also a good option. The Fleet versions of both of these are excellent ships, so consider it.
Escort wise, I suggest the MVAE or the Heavy Escort Carrier. Contrary to most opinions, I would stay away from the Defiant retrofit, which I think has a silly boff layout. The Steamrunner is occasionally on sale on Steam, so check that too.
