And, you can run Single Cannons fore and Beam Arrays aft which give you a 35 degree broadside. Again, not as wide as 70 degrees, but certainly more damaging than just running all beams.
quite right i did mean to say aft TURRET in order to give yourself a fighting chance when running away
as for doubles or singles, honestly whatever works for you and your play style, i have noticed that the old rule still applys though, go one energy type or go home, in my case its phasers due to the energy specific buff consoles i already owned
