All ships are to an extent self-reliant, the Engineer as a class is designed to have more mitigation that one player could possibly require at a cost of lower damage and utility.

The engineer is pretty clearly a Tank, and building one and not tanking means you are not 'self reliant' because it's very likely your Tacs and Sci's are taking the brunt of incoming damage, while also dealing more damage than you.

That's a drain, that's not self reliance.
