I run an escort with tactic officer abilities as follows: Rank 1 spread and target shields. Rank 2 high yield. High yield is my bread and butter, if I'm coming about for another torp I make sure my beam aray drops their shields before my canons face them.

I've found an interesting niche use for spread though. If an enemy has turned their weakest shield away from me I can either hit evasive maneuvers and zip back around to it, or I can hit torp spread and have a pretty good chance of putting some hull damage on that side.
