Great idea, for those heaviest of cruisers/dreadnoughts like the Oddy, Galaxy and Star Cruiser I would suggest allowing the use of 180 deg dual beams to the front and rear. This would require those beams to be shot from the strips, but that is not impossible as shown on DS9. Not sure about the assault cruiser on this, but probably would not be the wrong way to go. Those versions of weapons might be marginally weaker than the narrow angle versions, but not by much as the poor manoeuvrability of the ships we are talking about is already a big handicap.
