I agree, there needs to be a reason to mount dual cannons since they're not as good at getting their payload off as quickly as dual heavies. I'd also love to be able to mount them to a faster moving cruiser like an Excelsior. Heck I'd still be happy if they reduced the DPS output if it meant having a 90 degree arc.
I finally bit the bullet and gave a no torp all cannon/turret build a try with my Tac/Excelsior STF probe buster yesterday and I'm sold on the concept. I hate the way it looks, but it's effective. I just wish the single cannons shot from different mounts on the saucer section rather than all of them from one point, it looks stupid.
