Odyssey Class = No Cannons? What gives?

I have to admit, even if they did allow cannons on the Oddy, parking in front of your target just makes you easier to hit. Yes escorts pop quickly but they're not supposed to be tanks. The idea of the escort (in this game) is hit and run, and trying to keep out of firing range of your enemies. With the right build you can make them a little more robust as survival goes.
What are you going to when you can't turn fast enough to keep your enemy in your firing arc?
Beams and torps will always be the best choice for large, cumbersome ships like the Oddy.
