I have done a little research, but its hard to tell which class would be more fun for both pve and pvp. I am going back and fourth between tactical and engineering. I have been playing it for a bit and it seems a lot of what you do is just fight. So it would seem that tactical would be best maybe?

I don't know exactly what the trade offs are between the two.

Engineering = stonger shields bigger ship?

Tactical = DPS faster ships?

I just wonder how it balances out. If tactical usually wins every fight for pvp/pve, then whats the point of choosing any other class than tactical if all you do every mission is battle.

I personally am a fan of Science Ships. They can tank almost as well as Cruisers due to their high shield power and they have some really sweet abilities. Make a great team support role in PvP as well, but they really need to fix it so the leaderboards aren't based on DPS.

This. I chose science because the class/ships seemed to have the coolest abilities, which can be extremely useful in group PvE and PvP.

If that's how you personally feel, just stick to a Tactical officer and enjoy it rather than trying to convince yourself any differently or debate about it endlessly with strangers.

Let's see...what sandwich would taste better? The Corn beef on rye, the tofu with grass jelly wrap, or the headcheese and liverwurst on pumpernickle? Lessee...I know! I'll ask a group of strangers with varied likes and dislikes! Surely they can answer the question of what *I* would like!

Pardon the sarcasm, but each person is going to have a different answer for you. It doesn't matter what any of us find fun, what matters is what YOU find fun. Study each type of ship better, as well as the skill sets of the BOs.

For the record, tactical doesn't win every PvP battle. There it's the skill of the person as well as the type of character and ship he plays. Further, I've been going up against some klingons who I'm sure are science, one even appeared to be healing another ship.

Well, my toon is an engineer, but he'll be flying escorts. Wrap that around your head.
