As far as science vessels go, there are single cannon builds for those, dual cannon builds, regardless of ship, are somewhat screwed for set weapons. That said, the downside of cannon builds on science vessels is the loss of the use of your innates; does this weapon allow the use of Beam Target X Subsystem?
There are cannon builds yes, but the dps isn't a cannon, it's kind of the dps between a turret and a beam weapon. So placing it in a cannon build, regardless of ship, is even worse.
If it had the dps of a dual beam bank, I'd have no problems with it. DPS of a single cannon, while not my favorite build, I could do something with it. This thing isn't either.
