I'll be staying with my Escort forever, but, like you said, I really have noticed a sharp increase in Cruiser pilots.
Ill pop a cruiser i secs escorts i find to be harder to spike. On your other point ya they may live but they do almost no damage running full aux and shields and hope thier FAW kills somthing. We call them the UNDEAD dam Zombies.

Like most ships a poor cruiser player doesn't survive much longer than a poor escort player. It is only when you face a full premade running x3 cruisers and x2 sci ships, or you run into a group of noteworthy players who happen to be pugging but get thrown into the same pug that it becomes extreamly difficult to kill them. if you get past the sci ships shield heals and resist stacking you have to then get through the hull heals and resist stacking all in your 10s burst of damage, well i say burst, more lightly increased over standard damage.

I don't know if the majority fly cruisers because they think they are more trekkie or if because they believe it makes them better players. However, be thankful the latter is a mistaken belief, just because they have witnessed the unkillable cruiser and his friends surviving all things doesn't mean when they jump into a cruiser they will replicate it, you only have to kill a 5 man pug cruiser group in 10s and read zone chat to see that was not supposed to happen to them.

I think people fly cruisers since there is such a big incentive to fly cruisers. The most iconic and arguably the best looking ships are cruisers, they are advertised so much more (as a lot of cruisers are on the c store) and they are easier to fly (at least at a basic level). This is why I really think cryptic needs to give a little assistance to escort and science pilots. Their playstyle just isn't that intuitive. It wouldn't affect balance as it would only be changing loadouts etc, which good pilots would do anyway when they add their Covarient [cap]x3 etc...

No worries if you like to fly a cruiser. Nothing wrong with that. I'm sure the people who prefer cruisers will still fly them no matter any plausible changes. I just wanted to point out that people have been flying cruisers because they're powerful rather than because they prefer the ship.

I've heard 'spectator spec' and 'observer spec' as well.
