Looks like you are going for the super spike idea... it can work... really though... I would say you are way light on the rapid fire patterns which is going to account for 80% of your dmg potential. Myself I would loose the beam and the overload 2.... likely put Rapid Fire 3 in for Omega 3... and then run a copy of Delta 1.

You have lots of shield heals already true... but honestly I would likely say a copy of Transfer shield strength would still be better then the tractor 1... although I get the idea... tractor Overload + HY.

Also if you are going to run torps at all I don't think you can afford to run zero torp doffs.... the dps increase is just way to good when you run them.

Myself I would run Hazards 1 + TSS 2 on your sci....
With 2 Torp doffs instead of the Conn officers. (There likely to be nerfed shortly anyway)

Really I would likely try 2 quantums... with HY 3 and HY 2 + 2 doffs.... then on your alphas you can preload HY 3 and 2 very easily and spit 7 torps as you scream into a target... that is where it would really be nice to have Rapid fire 3 so you can really try to get that facing down... honestly Overload is just to often a miss to be reliable for that.

Still what ever works for you is the way to go... nothing majorly wrong with the build in anyway.
