I went single cannons on my Bortie. DHC was just not fun. I'm also a tac, YMMV.

Uni LtCom - TT1, CRF1, Dispersal Pattern Beta:2
Lt Tac - BO1, APB1
Com eng - EP2S1, Aux2Bat1, EWP1, DEM3
Uni ens - EP2W1
Lt Sci - HE1, TSS2

1 DBB, 3xSingle cannons - Polarized Disruptors rock my socks.
2xTricobalt mines, 2x turret

3xBortasqu' consoles, Neturonium plate
Field generator
5xdisruptor console

3xAux2Bat doff
1xEWP doff
Wild card doff slot - evasive is a good pick
Good build, but why not put EPTA1 in the place of EPTW1 to better augment your moments of AtB increase?

All Beams
Uni LtCom - EPTA1, AtB1, (A2Sif2, DEM2, RSP2, ET3)
Lt Tac - BO1, ApD1
Com eng - EP2S1, AtB1, EWP1, DEM3
Uni ens - BFaw1
Lt Sci - HE1, TSS2

(3) Technician DOffs
(2) Systems Engineer (DEM activated Weapon Power drain reduction DOff)

Use a Key bind that cycles EPTA1 + TSS2 + HE1 + AtB1 + BO1(BFaw1) + ApD1 + DEM2/3 + EPTS1 back around to EPTA1 to start the process over again.

Add in the Engineers ability to use EPS transfer to boost Power across the board by a minimum of +16.
Use Nadion Inversion to keep power drain non-existant. Save Miracle worker, Engineer Fleet and Rotate Shield Frequency for defense.

Find a way to get a Tractor Beam and replace the BFaw1 with BO1 and use the vessel as to trap a ship and work them down to death from over-capped weapon energy and survive the process using your inherent Engineer ability to tank.

Or go a step better and build this version;

(4) beams
(4) Turrets

Uni LtCom - EPTA1, AtB1, (A2Sif2, DEM2, RSP2, ET3)
Lt Tac - BO1, CRF1
Com eng - EP2S1, AtB1, EWP1, DEM3
Uni ens - TT1
Lt Sci - HE1, TSS2

(2) Technicians
(1) System Engineers (DEM)
(2) <do not know name of DOff > ( The one that increases Bleed-thru damage on a proc % chance)

The Borti is a tough ship and can be a boon to the Engineer player , imo. Though the Fleet Vorcha may be a better platform for the single AtB1 build concept with its higher turnrate.
