Can a cruiser do spike damage and replace an escort?

Assuming equal heal support for a spike cruiser and escort I'd say yes.
Fleet excelsior, fleet assault cruiser refit can be unbelievably lethal.
The real determining factor is pilot skill. Your escort will always have better maneuverability and battlefield control.
Romulan hyper flux + FOMM + BO3/2 on a DEM3 Marion doff setup... Does horrible things to other ships. So long as you can lob everything off in 8 seconds!
Emojoe's little blurb about cycling beam overloads is actually very valid on fed cruisers.
