I think ive i have a solid layout which ill list, but what im after is tips on how to increase my damage output. Any advice or pointers are welcome.

I use a beam load out or a cannon load out as listed bellow:

FORE WEAPONS
x3 Tetryon MKXI Dual Heavy Cannons Accx3
x1 Tetryon MKXI Dual Beam Bank Accx3

AFT WEAPONS
x3 Tetryon MKXI Turrets Accx3

MACO XI Deflector

Borg Engines

Borg Sheilds

ENGINEERING CONSOLES
1x EPS
x1 Borg universal console
x1 Sheild amplifier (+3.5 sheild power setting)

SCIENCE CONSOLES
x1 Shiled generator (+35% sheild cap thingy)
x1 Sheild thingy (+13% sheild regain rate)

TACT CONSOLES
x4 Tetryon (+26 tetryon weapons) or x4 Phaser (+26 phaser weapons)

COMMANDER TACT BO
tact team I, rapid fire I, omega I, rapid fire IIII

LTCMDR TACT BO
tact team I, beam overload II, omega I or Beam Overload 3

LT TACT BO
beam overload I (If Beam Overload 3 + 2 then Target Engines 1 or Target Shields 1)

ENGINEERING BO
EptS I, EptS II

SCIENCE BO
hazard emitters I, transfer sheild strengh II
This above should be fine for an Engineer/Escort. Just remember you aren't a Tac so don't expect to do the same kind of Damage output a Tac can do. But you will be fine in longer term burst fire + Survivability.
