However I will disagree with this part:
I can outheal the majority of an alpha strike from a bug in my Odyssey. Anything I can't outheal straight up I can usually pick up with HoTs. You are correct, cannon and BA damage have a massive disparity, almost to the point of stupidity, but you vastly underestimate or devalue the ability of cruisers to heal not only themselves but others.
Word of advice:
If you're having trouble surviving against an escort, use the following ability combo: EPtS3, TT1, HE2, TSS1, Aux2SIF3, as appropriate. If you keep cycling those abilities and time them properly, the escort will never pop you. Also you have MW3 as your "oh ****" button, and combined with a RSP2, you can EASILY outlast any escort, at least long enough that it will get bored/one of your teammates will come and kill it.
and with a regent, a BO2 and HTY3 can really ruin an escort's day if you can nail him with a tractor. tractor mines and the grappler will slow him long enough that BO2 pops his shield and HYT3 his hull. catch him with tractors and a broadside also does wonders on his shields
Sensors indicate a caitian carrier, Sir
. Excellent. Ready the Catnip Torpedoes for a full spread.
