I figured out a good solution for the NX having maximum capability if probes and spheres start to get over-whelming:
[Romulan Dual Plasma Beam Bank Mk XII [Acc]x2]
[Romulan Hyper-Plasma Torpedo Launcher]
Mk XII Borg set
[Plasma Mine Launcher Mk XII [CrtD]x2 [CrtH]]
[Console - Engineering - Neutronium Alloy Mk XI]
[Console - Rule 62 Multipurpose Combat Console]
[Console - Universal - Grappler]
[Console - Universal - Point Defense System]
Of course this setup can be improved with top of the line neutronium.
But until you have a cube on top of you, you can insert either a Torpedo point Defense console or Theta Radiation console instead of the neutronium (obviously, since probes don't fight back).
On the other hand, you could put in an Ambiplasma Envelope console, instead of the grappler. Depends on what you find more useful (depending on your skill point allocation, somethings will be more effective).
The above setup is used with my science captain who has a skill point allocation oriented toward disabling.
EDIT: almost forgot: for tactical ability, while doing probes, i have torpedo spread (with a Romulan b.o.f.f. that improves science abilities). Then, if spheres and cubes show up, I switch to beam over-load to punch through shields, so my mines can do maximum damage.
