I see more and more Tac officers in cruisers and in a few baffling cases in Science ships. I often hear people saying escorts are OP... Colossally OP in some cases. which brings me to my question.... Why do tac officers seem to COMPLETELY waste so much damage potential by flying something other then an escort?
More often than not ... these Tac Officers are Expanding or Redefining their play-style to utilize the qualities of the Cruisers and Sci ships, and Boffs abilities.
Sci Ship = free Sub-system targeting -- more Sci Boff abilities (Viral Matrix, Tyken's Rift, Photonic Shockwave, )
Cruisers= Greater Hull -- more Eng Boff abilities (Aceton Beam, Boarding Party, Eject Warp Plasma, Engineer Team)
