Are beam escorts a waste of time?

I've actually been planning on swapping out my Quantum for a Tricobalt as well. Like I described in my tactics above, I'm usually within 0-4km of the enemy when I'm engaging anyway, and they're usually in a tractor beam, so a Tricobalt likely would be a good choice. At that distance, the enemy has almost no chance to react to it, unless they have that turret console that automatically shoots them down, but I think that's pretty rare, since there are many better consoles to use than that.
I think the Tricobalts will do damage to you as well if you're too close to the explosion though, so a person would have to be careful.
