Mh, there's some argument for using one with beam overload, though.

True that.

And DHCs are best regarding the energy drain.
DHCs will suck power with the last volley fired and not with each shot, making them more viable.

BeamOverload is a good way of adding burst dmg. On the other hand, a quantum torp launcher on AFT could do the job instead.
