My engineer has all 3 plus being an engineer doesnt mean you have to fly cruisers, just use a ship you feel comfortable using

Cruiser's (Tactical, Engineer, or Science) can make use of many Tactical BO powers, but usually powers that center on Beam Weapons, such as Beam Overload or Fire at Will, and Torpedo High Yield or Torpedo Spread. Cruisers will get more mileage from the Beam Weapon powers, including the target subsystems.

Tactical Powers are useful but you want to aim for something you can pop during battle often and possibly on short notice. Cruisers usually are Tank/Healer or Tank/Support, so try to aim accordingly.

Need no, but they help tremendously since they boost your attack and defense, regardless of your class.
