End-game escort for DPSing... Well if ECs are no object to you, then get a Jem'hadar Attack Ship off the exchange. Best possible PvE escort. However if ECs are a problem, as long as you are in a fleet, just get the Fleet Patrol Escort. Tanky as hell, perfect BOff layout for full cannon & turret build, and overall a great ship. If you don't have ECs but have a lot of Zen, get the Tac Escort Retrofit or the Multi-Vector Advanced Escort Retrofit. Both ships are great for damage output. However if you are restricted to freebie escorts only, MY OPINION ONLY, get the Patrol Escort. Tanky, and deals wonderful damage.

Now for a build... Well basically you want cannons and turrets (dual heavy cannons are better than dual cannons, turrets in rear), and you want two copies of Tactical Team 1, multiple cannon rapid fires/cannon scatter volleys, and multiple attack pattern betas.

As engineering goes, Emergency Power to Shields 1, and Auxiliary to the Structural Integrity Field 1.

As Science goes, Hazard Emitters and Transfer Shield Strengths.

Specific ship builds to follow when I am more awake.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

Jem'Hadar attack ships are a couple mill, around 250-300 i believe. You could opt for the mobius, only 70-90mill, cant remember exact but its a pretty good ship for damage and has an awesome boff layout.

"A few mil"? That's a bit of an understatement, Bug ships are into the hundreds of millions.

The fleet tac escort retrofit may be a more obtainable 5-tac console ship (if your own fleet doesn't have a T5 shipyard, you can buy access from another fleet that does), but unfortunately it suffers from "useless 3rd tac ensign syndrome", so you need to either use a beam (which if you're going for pure DPS... just don't), use a torp, or waste the slot.

Heretic's advice is pretty good, the only thing I'd say is watch out for tractor beams. No Polarize Hull or Attack Pattern Omega, combined with needing to get really close to the target, could leave you pinned in place at point-blank range of incoming fire.

I myself won a bug ship[ and I love it. However I would not pay the 400M EC being asked for it. There are other good escorts out there. The Jem Heavy Escort Carrier would make more sense if purchasing for EC, those are in the 60M EC range. (about 7x less) The temporal destroyer may be a good route to go as well. In regards to your build, if you're looking to do STF's, view the following thread. Read the beginning thoroughly.
