Just so OP knows, the wide-angle Q-torp comes with the Assault Cruiser Refit (Regent class). This is, in many ways, a side-grade to a more tactically-inclined version of the AC.
If you want a ship that's more oriented towards a battleship role, this is a pretty good one IMO, though some might say you'd get more out of the Odyssey Tactical, and the Excelsior-R is a bit cheaper.
That said I'm also going to have to recommend the q-torp; the lower DPS of that weapon is more than made up for by the fact that you now have a torpedo involved in your broadsides.
