However I feel that it's very boring to play that way and scimitar looks silly firing broadsides as it's clearly designed to fire forward plus not having a torp on a ship is not very authentic trek to my tastes.

So, as the dyson rep is rising fastest, I was thinking of putting together a scimitar with dual beam protonic polaron banks, the proton weapon, the gravity torps and the lot, together with dyson tactical consoles buffing proton damage. Would that actually work or would it be terrible? I'm not looking for 30k dps since I'm not gonna pvp with this character and not like infected space elite even needs that. An 'ok' ship would work for me but not a terrible one. I have plasmonic console available but not the valdore one.
It would be terrible. Scimi doesn't have the turn rate to use dhc or dbb. It won't come close to the dps of escorts sporting the same weapons, much less beam array cruisers.

Valdore console haven't reached the "mandatory" status of plasmonic leech, but you should still have it.
