If you enjoy this sort of ship, I'd offer up the idea of rolling a KDF character, I have buckets of fun in my Negh'var, and it's a lot easier to keep your enemy in front of you. But part of what helps with that is having two Aux to inertial Dampers on tap, you can run it constantly aside from a five second window. It wouldn't go as far on a Galaxy X, but it'd still be pretty cool I imagine.
As for me, I fly the Excelsior R on my Fed engineer, I like the added punch of three consoles and a Lt Cmdr tac slot, although I break out the Galaxy R quite often as it comes under the same skill in the spec tree, it's tanking ability is impressive, although I have been strongly critical of how Galaxy class ships handle in the past, it's fun to fly seperated, but that has a four minute cool down and it goes from being a "good" cruiser to an "ok" escort. That said, I may persevere as some people seem to make it work quite well. I will probably use it more for PVE than PVP though, as I've gotten "into the groove" of my Excelsior at this point, it's just how I like it. Although the Excelsior is one of my favourite ships anyhow, so that usually swings it for me.
I'm tempted to make a KDF character, to use a Carrier and perhaps a Negh'var for PVE. The design is beautiful, when I have more motivation I will do it.
My favorite usage for an Engineer concerning ships are typically..
Engi/Escort. Built right you can Tank and DPS at the same time.
Engi/Sci. Shield Tanking never got so easy.. And neither did Debuffing and being able to dish out damage when need be either.
Engi/Carrier. This is like the Engi/Sci except it's just as durable as the old faithful Engi/Cruiser but gives Debuffs from Sci and DPS from it's Pets and it's LtC Tactical slot. It's only downside is it's turn rate. But it's an understandable downside.
My Least Favorites are:
Engi/Cruiser. This is basically a healer, and I dislike playing Healer role personally.
Engi/BoP. Sure you can be tanky, and you can come up with an interesting build set up.. But the set up more then likely will do better in an Escort since you'll get that extra Tactical Console, which can make the difference.
