My standard suggestion is the Patrol Escort. It's got good endurance and some pretty sharp teeth. You can pick up the mirror version on the exchange for a couple thousand energy credits these days. It's a very forgiving ship and a great platform to learn the mechanics of the game with.

If you're a fan of science ships though, I will highly recommend the tactical Vesta. It has a fragile hull(meaning shields are very important), but it's also flexible enough to perform just about any role you throw at it(the only exception I can think of off the top of my head is a minelayer - which only ships with commander tactical bridge slots can truly shine at).
