And turning like an escort is pointless when you use beam arrays in a cruiser. You don't need to turn quickly. especially since separation has a long cooldown and dual beam banks are useless when you reconnect and have to wait until you can separate again.

You are correct, they do not stack. They did for a little while in the last month when they messed around with the way the console works. I just discovered today after posting that they removed the stacking bonus. Still, I suggest something like the assimilated console in the remaining science slot and use the engineering slots for hull armors and one EPS console. You really don't need anything else.
