I like a Dual Beam Bank in the front sometimes. If you have a bridge officer with Beam Overload, that adds a nice punch to your alpha strike. Plus, it looks and sounds pretty cool when it fires.

If you do that, bear in mind that your Tactical consoles may need adjusting. Cannons and turrets are modified by the Prefire Chamber, but beams aren't. You might instead want to get consoles that modify your type of energy weapons (e.g. phasers, disruptors), because those will modify *all* of your energy weapons -- beams, cannons, turrets -- provided they all emit the same type of energy.
