I run a mvam escort with a (phaser) dual beam beam bank, 2 arrays, and a quantum up front and 2 beam arrays and a quantum in the rear and am consistently in the top 2 damage wise in pvp matches. I bet if I switched from phasers to a different type of beam once in a while, I'd top the damage charts.

Beams are pretty underrated by the players for escorts. They like the burst-damage kills, but if I have a good support healer, I can last longer and do more damage over time than most cannon escort builds, especially if I use mvam (I prefer Alpha for increased survivability if I'm with a poor healer or no healer).
