Wow. Those are some really screwed up firing arcs...
The fore Quantum + DBB and Cannon would indicate that you should be facing your target, but there are no turrets in the back, so that's out. And the 3 beam arrays would indicate a broadsides approach, but then the DBB and quantums are useless. And having both a fore and aft torp means that one of them is pretty much always useless. And then there is the issue of mixing cannons and beams, making your BO skills sub-optimal.
Really, I'm not sure that I could some up with a worse weapon configuration for an escort if I was purposefully trying to do so.
