Ive used Beam Boat prometheus a lot mainly because i am a Canon nazi.
But its very effective too, as people don't seem to quite know how to fight you, since they expect all escorts to have their firepower limited to a narrow forward arc.
The greatest advantage with a Beam Escort is that your maneuvrabe enough to constantly keep your broadside on target at nearly all times, unlike large lumbering cruisers that can be outmaneuvered.
And Beam Overload III combined with Torpedo High Yield III is pretty devestating.
Beam Boat escorts are more effective for Engineers though IMO, as they have powers that increase survivability as well as a few powers that help diminish the energy drain from weapons when firing.
