Just thought of a thing that would be useful... for me, at least.

A means of switching between weapon loadout presets, especially during combat. Probably some kind of toggle with a cooldown, like the Battle Module 3000.

See, I keep extra weapons in my inventory so that depending on the mission I can go with 6-beam broadside and fore/aft torpedoes or what I term "assault mode," switching to four arrays aft, two DBBs and two torpedoes fore, which is actually a really useful loadout for large enemies (Borg Cubes, Gates, Unimatrix Command Ships, etc.), since any enemy that takes up more than roughly 10 degrees in your ship's field of view can get hit with all eight weapons simultaneously for more damage than the usual beamboat loadout.
