you wanna give the cruisers back thier bite give them torp launchers that fire in 360 degree arcs..... regardless of the torpedo type... if its a torp that gets mounted on a cruiser it gets a 360 degree firing arc period... but only for the Fed Cruisers... since no one plays KDF anymore since all the good KDF toys are available to feds already anyway....
I wouldn't ask for 360 degree arcs for torpedos because it wouldn't make sense. There is no such torpedo weapon in Star Trek canon. Just give the torpedos more teeth and they are fine where they are. The most attacked part of a cruiser from an escort is it's rear, so puting powerful torpedos in that area would discourage players from hanging back there too long. It's like when you fight the NPC Dreadnoughts, you avoid hanging around its front and rear arcs because it's torpedo spreads will deal you a death blow or near death blow.
