The sci slots, are to be used for the usual suspects to finish it off, with aux batteries to raise the healing potential when the heat is on.

It's not a trade off. Superior Durability, Near Equal Damage, with the ability to heal in a pinch.
Damage does not equal Burst damage.

If you want to do burst... fly an escort.

High damage numbers mean nothing, if you cannot kill your target. This setup just means you will spread more love around..but you won't burst anybody down..and nobody would consider you target #1 in the battlefield.
