I like the DoT values that eat away at targets even after they have passed my weapons arc. I have tried other damage types but they don't seem as good as the plasma cannons/torps/mines combo I am using.

What am I missing? Is there something else I should be using?

My build is 3x Plasma Cannons (180 degree arc), and 1x Plasma Torpedo up front. 1x Plasma Turret and 1x Plasma Mine in the back. 3x plasma tac consoles (+17% each). Then resistance mods in the engineering consoles.
at level cap the 4 most popular shields have a 20% resistance to your energy type. and you should really be using duel heavy cannons, they will deal so much more damage then single cannons
