Tac Escorts are useless. Go engineer.

The thread is not encouraging. Im probably going to be making an alt soon. Im an engineer on a cruiser.

I was thinking of going tactical in an escort. Should I do science instead? I really like the cruiser even though some people complain about it. I love it.

Would science be a better choice then?

Tac Escort have very poor survivability. If you like fighting with your hull every single PVE battle and being a pinata for Klingons, go ahead.

The reason is really survival. Tac escorts really are delicious morsels unless supported because of it. An engineering escort can rely on the Engi captain skills to survive some focus firing. Likewise, a Tac captain in a cruiser can make use of the extra engineer BOs to get more survival skills. Unfortunately, a Tac in an escort has neither, and will die under focus fire unless supported by someone who can provide that missing survivability.

Escorts can't stay in battle. They strafe in, hit Evasive and get out. Give it a few seconds and repeat. If you try and go toe-to-toe with more then 1 ship you're going to end up tribble sausage.
I beg to differ I go in guns blazing in my saber class and I stay in the enemy viewscreens.
I dont stop fighting and working my controls untill i am either dead or have made it through the other side.

Escorts are made to divert attention away from your allies so they can put their game on.
They should also stick together.

You must die a lot more then I do then, while both achieving the same ends: mission complete. We'll see which stradegy works better when the Death Penalty is implemented.

Hello I am an Escort. I have done PvP since T1 and I have not a single complaint. I play smart and in a 5 on 5, I run my power settings so I can hit evasive if I am primary. I get lots of kills and typically get top damage. In larger games I absolutely murder the other side unless the teams are completely imbalanced skill wise. In those cases I only somewhat murder the other side.

My escort thinks your escort should learn to play and if you haven't already, pick up RSP, science team, and jam sensors.
