What do people think of the bortas as a beam boat? I have a bortasqu command ship and don't bother with cannons outside of STFs, play it like a fed cruiser with more tactical consoles (and fun KDF consoles like plasmonic leach).
With APO and evasive maneuvers I can usually maneuver at a strategic level (just not reliably in the thick of a fight).

IMO, this 'great in STF (particularly with extra nudge of an autocannon), good as a regular beam boat' is a (small) selling feature.

I mean, the faster cruisers are still not going to keep up with escorts and raiders.
