Oh god I love my weaver. I also run CC, though I'm more purely specced into CC. Personal opinion of mine is you should focus on one thing as a science captain, wether it be CC, drains, heals, whatever is your cup of tea.As people suggested, and as I saw you got one, Gravimetric Doffs work wonders.
The web is one thing I CAN comment on. It's built more for control of groups of smaller enemies, and it's useful in ANY STF, whther you're stopping nanite spheres, and buying some kill time, stopping the adapted nehg'vars and buying some kill time, or stopping the probes from reaching the gate and buying some ki - well, yeah, you get the picture. smaller weaker enemies are what it's best at. Using it on larger enemies isn't a good idea, cause it will normally just piss them off, which is something thats not good in a science vessel.
The ship is fast enough, and specializes in science enough that you can basically choose what weapons you want to use. I prefer tetryon on this particular ship, and have scrapped the torpedoes. It's speed helps with using a single cannon/turret build, and it can still lay down a reasonable amount of hurt if you focus on a target. I've outstripped a couple of escorts with mine in damage numbers, often in the 150k range after an average STF. I still use a dual beam bank up front with the subsystem targeting abilities. It kind of works well that you can get a super-powerful tetryon beam array from the nukara rep now, and TWO tetryon lance sort of powers, one from teir 5, and one from the nukara three piece. Very good synergy there.
