Turrets are pretty much just for Escorts, they provide an a little more DPS than having nothing in there.

While I did tell my brother to put a turret on his cruiser, this was when he had 2 fore and 2 aft. So I thought a forward Torp, 2 beam arrays and a turret would work for him (and it did). But if your in a Dreadnought your Level 50 so Turrets are no use in a cruiser.

The Exception to this is Klingon Cruisers can run DHCs and have the turn to use it so an Escort config may work for them.

There is also a Sci ship mode of thinking that says 2 or 3 DBB's front and 1 Beam array and 2 Turrets rear. You have Beams at 360 for innate system targeting and the majority of your firepower forward.
