I've never understood the mindset of min-maxing in any of the MMOs I have played. I set myself up in a way that is fun. Fun for me usually means twin cannons of some type, Torps, with a wide area beam weapon hanging off my back end for general coverage. I'm not a fan of the flying in circles aroudn the enemy. I'm more the fly straight at them, suck their facing shield away and leave them with a present of Boarding parties to deal with.

Sadly, this tactic isn't as effective as it was in the old Starfleet Command PC game from about 12 years ago, as boarding parties don't ever actually take control of an enemy ship.
