Sorry to say, with science vessels, this is what you'll be doing most of the time. I've tried different sci ship setups, but nothing performs better for me than one torp fore, one torp aft, the rest beams.
If you want a change though, try my favorite sci ship setup, use plasma torps. Sci ships are maneuverable and durable enough to punch a hole in a shield and deliver a heavy plasma torp at point blank range. Scramble sensors, jam sensors, sci team are your powers of choice for this setup.
