Well that's a matter of opinion and aim, I could quite easily run a galaxy class in game with a 4 beam broadside focussing most firepower fore and aft, it gives me spike damage and the broadside doesn't suffer as much from drain, my dual aft torp setup also punishes escort pilots for sitting behind me while the DBB on th front gives me some evil damage on a BO attack.
Basically it's designed to deal with threats fore and aft and sustain med-high DPV in the broadside while tanking anything the game throws at it, which is exactly what I think the devs had in mind building it
