I love the Odyssey as well. Too bad we don't see it much as NPCs...maybe Cryptic should re-skin a few of the old Jupiters to even-out the Dreadnought skins.

From a game standpoint, Cruisers are all Engineering-centric. For more emphasis on Tactical than Engineering, you would go to the T5 +1 Escorts, such as the Armitage or MVAE, while for similar emphasis on Science, you would go with the Atrox or Long Range Retrofit (though the Advanced Research Retrofit would be closer to an Odyssey, it doesn't have equal Science capacity to the Long Range Retrofit).

In short, if the Odyssey had more Tactical or Science slots/BOFF stations than Engineering, it wouldn't be a Cruiser.
