Generally speaking, you are hurting yourself if you run more than 5 beams. A way around this is to have 1 or 2 dual beams up front. You get more DPS in your forward arc, but still broadside with 4 or 5 beams.

Another hybrid you could consider is

Tac: TT1, HYT or BO or FAW
Eng: EptS1, EngT 2, AuxSIF 2 (or EptS2 and EngT1)
Eng: EptS1, RSP 1,EngT 3, EWP3 (works REALLY well against carriers)
Sci: TSS1, HE2

Keep in mind if you are engineer, you will also have RSF, and miracle worker

EDIT: Also, remember if you run Emer power to aux, it will have shared cooldown with other "Emergency power to ..." abilities.
