Try each of the ships on Tribble and find which ones you like the best.

I just created a comparison Word file for me to look at them side by side and compare.
if you're an agressive engineer player, get the armitage, its pretty sturdy for an escort and has a lt. cmdr engineer boff slot, and has fighters, the fleet patrol escort and the blockade(steamrunner) escort are even sturdier with 4 engineer slots.

I can echo this sentiment. Setup the right way, Armitages, Maelstroms (and to a slightly lesser degree) Steamrunners can soak up insane amounts of damage while still dishing out some serious hurt and not sacrificing nimbleness (throw a tachyokinetic console on any of the three and they absolutely dance)

i would say since your an engineer get either the advanced cruiser retrofit (the excelsior) or the Assault Cruiser Refit: Regent (a boosted assault cruiser). They are decent enough tactical focused engineering cruisers.

If you are more aiming for the DPS side of things the Heavy Escort Carrier: Armitage, is a nice escort that if played right can do a fair bit of tanking.

If you want just raw firepower then your looking at the:

Tactical Escort Refit:
Add: Borg set
front:
Heavy anti-proton cannons 3 slots
Qauntom Torp launcher

Rear
Borg cutting beam
2 anti-proton turrent

This setup gives you 6 weapons shooting at a target on the fwd. pass. then you lock the borg tractor beam on the guy cut him up with Borg cutting beam.

Bridge officer abilitys:
High yield torps
rapid fire
scatter fire
emg. power to weapons
Eng team 1
Sci team 1
Tac beam

As an engineer in a Chimera who formerly flew in a Sci Oddy, I really want to try the Recon Vesta. DHCs, a hanger (Ultra Rare Scorps, please!), 4 Tac consoles, a decent layout... dude!
