Thank you for that moment of sanity.

There's nothing inherently wrong with a beam-scort. No, you will not do the burst damage in STF's that a cannon build will have, BUT if you're toe-to-toe with another escort in PvP, the extra time-on-target that beams will have compared to cannons may make that crucial difference.

Just ask Lady Fek'lhr how effective they can be. I've been popped many times by that vicious lilac-beamed Garumba.
