Are beam escorts a waste of time?

With my tactical captain's escort I run with a mix of 2xDHC and 1DBB in front, Quantum Torpedo. Then in the rear I use BAs and a Quantum. I know I am giving up some damage from not using turrets, but there's a method to my madness. It allows me to have spike damage from both front and rear (BO3, +THY).
Also, TS3 can just take shields completely offline. I'm not sure if it's viable in PvP since people have tons of shield powers that put their shields back up, but in PvE totally shutting down an enemy shield is pretty effective, especially on elite.
