As I noted in my example, certain Escorts may be more suited with beam weaponry as opposed to cannons, such as the Prometheus, or even the Akira Class. In fact, the only known FED ship to use cannons, is the Defiant, and even then, it has a mixture of beams and cannons. "Turrets" are unique to STO, and not even remotely canon to Trek.
