It wouldn't go as far on a Galaxy X, but it'd still be pretty cool I imagine.

As for me, I fly the Excelsior R on my Fed engineer, I like the added punch of three consoles and a Lt Cmdr tac slot, although I break out the Galaxy R quite often as it comes under the same skill in the spec tree, it's tanking ability is impressive, although I have been strongly critical of how Galaxy class ships handle in the past, it's fun to fly seperated, but that has a four minute cool down and it goes from being a "good" cruiser to an "ok" escort. That said, I may persevere as some people seem to make it work quite well. I will probably use it more for PVE than PVP though, as I've gotten "into the groove" of my Excelsior at this point, it's just how I like it. Although the Excelsior is one of my favourite ships anyhow, so that usually swings it for me.
I'm tempted to make a KDF character, to use a Carrier and perhaps a Negh'var for PVE. The design is beautiful, when I have more motivation I will do it.

I've always wanted a carrier too, but could never find the motivation for levelling up my Lethean

Well our good omnipotent amigo Q should be dropping by again soonish, so that'd be the time to do it me thinks.

My favorite usage for an Engineer concerning ships are typically..

Engi/Escort. Built right you can Tank and DPS at the same time.

Engi/Sci. Shield Tanking never got so easy.. And neither did Debuffing and being able to dish out damage when need be either.

Engi/Carrier. This is like the Engi/Sci except it's just as durable as the old faithful Engi/Cruiser but gives Debuffs from Sci and DPS from it's Pets and it's LtC Tactical slot. It's only downside is it's turn rate. But it's an understandable downside.

My Least Favorites are:

Engi/Cruiser. This is basically a healer, and I dislike playing Healer role personally.

Engi/BoP. Sure you can be tanky, and you can come up with an interesting build set up.. But the set up more then likely will do better in an Escort since you'll get that extra Tactical Console, which can make the difference.

To me, Engineer/Escort has the most potential.

I agree that there is no best ship just what you can suit to your needs, i'm a tactical fed player and i have a Nebula class and its working out great for me. I'm actually thinking of buying TOS Constitution class and the NX class also as different ships i can upgrade and use, i also want the Galaxy class and the Excelsior class refit. but im not to that rank yet lol.

It is one of the pivotal moments in human history, Doctor. You get to make first contact with an alien race! And after you do... everything begins to change."

I think the Avenger Battle Cruiser is the best combination of damage and survivability. I am an Engineer as well and this type of ship fits my play style.
