Should I bother with torpedoes on my cruiser?

I typically just run 7 beams +1 warhead, but I run Fire@Will III and II. Unless you happen to have a Bortas, you won't be able to do that. That said, I prefer beams over duals/cannons in a cruiser cause it takes too long to line up a shot and half the time you have to stop moving once you do(stf). With a lot of beams you make up the loss of not using cannons or dual beams by not having to lineup and it frees you to hit other targets(like probes) as they pass by in what would normally be out of firing arc.
You'll just have to play around with weapons till you create a build that matches your style.
