I'd like to hear the opinions of some of the more senior STO players.

1. What is the most popular and least popular career path? Does anything stand out as over or underrepresented or is there a fairly even spread?
2. Same question, but about ship types. Do the majority of players tend to play one class, cruiser escort or science? Are any of the types more rare than the others?
3. For groups and fleets, is it necessary/desirable to have a good mix or can you perform just as well with few or no of a single ship type? And the same question applies to ground groups, is it a problem if you're lacking tactical or engineering or science captains?
4. Finally, are some career paths more suited to certain ship types? For example do science captains get more out of a science ship than engineers or tactical captains?

Thanks for your feedback!

Seems like Tactical / Escort is the most popular from what I've seen and heard

Tactical
Engineer
Space

Escorts are everywhere, mostly captained by tactical captains, and some engineers.
Second are cruisers, captained by engineers and tactical captains.
Science vessels, you don't see that many... I don't know why, I love the science vessels.

In order of most to least popular
Class:
Tactical
Engineer
Science

Ship:
Crusier
Escort
Science


Escorts are a little more common in t2 PvE but in PvP and higher levels the cruisers start showing up more.
