A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
My KDF tac loves her Bortasqu', Kar'fi, Mirror Qin, and the Chel Grett.
Mirror Qin and the Chell Grett if you have it are the more "standard" options. They fly like escorts. Go fast, use DHC/turrets, hurt things. Both are nice, I give the edge to the Chel, but the Qin is more maneuverable.
Bortasqu' is a total beast, but she isn't for everybody. She barely moves better then a Vo'Quv, but once you learn how to handle big ships I've found no more fun cruiser. She is like the Dreadnought Cruiser on steroids and taking graduate classes in pain. A totally different playstyle, and an expensive option, but worth it if you know how to fly one.
Kar'fi is a PvE powerhouse. You will always have another option. You get the entire KDF fighter force to choose from, and some of those pets are amazing. Interceptors? Slavers? Fer'Jai? Oh my! Commander sci slot can stack with a tac's captain abilities to do some crazy things to the power of a grav well or TBR. She has an escorts weapon layout, a significant amount of tactical abilities, and a turn rate that makes all the other full carriers jealous. She also looks amazing. I love cruising around with a full complement of S'Kuls, with our red engine exhaust trailing... I like her better then the Vo'Quv, even tho some people say the Vo'Quv with BoP bets beats it out... maybe it does for the sci's but I prefer the Kar'fi on my tac.
Because nothing is scarier then a Betazoid sci flying a Galaxy
I am going to say this, taking a BoP into a STF is a risk for two reasons.
First, you gain nothing because STFs favor DPS and a BoP battlecloak is about as useful as a cloak, you use it for the initial Alpha but if you disengage and cloak you might as well just disengage since Borg ships take a long time to catch up with you.
Also you do less DPS that a escort due to the 4/2 layout.
Second, on Elite the Borg hit HARD and true enough escorts can be oneshooted (even cruisers) but BoPs have really problems because they pay for their battlecloak with their hull and shield modifier so there is definitely some serious drawbacks because how STFs favor DPS and sustainable DPS at that because of of the massive inflated hulls on pretty much every ship in there.
So you might as well get a battlecruiser to do then, the advice on the Qin is because ... well its cheap really and its a escort, it have more hull, more weapons and a cloak as the Fleet Vorcha is pretty much the best KDF battlecruiser and its not as if STFs have fast moving targets either, the most maneuverable ship is the Borg Assimilated Raptor that will only go after you in Cure in some specific situations.
I have no problems doing either STFs as my B'rel BoP has got 2 DHC didrupter and 2 turrets1 photon and harphang toprpedo.I do this my kdf engineer.I don't find I have problems but when in an elite I get I get hit.I use it for fun in normals and use my BCH in elites.
