Since you havn't been on for a few years, I'll inform you of a change that happened about a year ago. This game is now called Escorts Online for good reason: everything in the game these days revolves around DPS, which escorts excell at, better than any other ship variant. All the escort needs to do is have 2 copies of tactical team and 2 copies of emergeny power to sheilds, and it is virtually invincible.

However, now for the help part. As someone who went from using only cruisers to using an escort I recomend the Armitage Heavy Escort Carrier. It's the sturdiest escort fed side, and is still good at DPS. I'll admit, the hanger pets took some getting used to. The lieutenant commander engineering also really helps with its tankiness. This is the first and only escort I've ever used, and I love it so much that I've never left since I bought it. The only downside to it is the useless 3rd ensign tac.
