But secondly my concern is the fact that you are taking away a 360 degree weapon and replacing it with a 90 degree ark weapon... when they both hit about the same. Sounds fishy to me, how often do you think this behemoth will out run a target or even show its tail to an enemy? This isn't exactly a nimble girl, she's actually quit clumsy and unwieldy and more a cruiser then a hybrid so keep that in mind.
I got lucky with this one and the lifetime subscription was more a gift.
But as far as the the second concern goes, I think the Cutting Beam is also 360 degrees. I think my main concern is whether or not the Omega Weapon Amplifier is worth the decreased DPS when compared to another Phaser Turret.
I'd go with a boff set up like this, but only for PvE and if you really want that torp.
Tac Com - TT, APB1, CRF2, APB3
Tac Lt. Com - TT, CRF1, THY3
Eng Lt - EPtS1, AtSIF1
Sci Lt - HE1, TSS2
Eng Ens - EPtS1
I always thought AoE was more important than single target skills, but I keep on hearing opinions to the contrary. I'm starting to think that CRF should be favored to CSV.
I'm kinda iffy on the torpedo. Was thinking about using a Dual Beam Array or something, but if I do that, would I have to do anything special in order to maintain a good power level?
