It's better as it is.
On an escort, maybe. They used to be okay on cruisers if the turn rate was high enough.
It says a lot that the only useful type of beam weapon now is a DBB paired with BO. Arrays used to be good for pressure DPS, but pressure DPS is pretty irrelevant now.
*Something* needs to be done with beam arrays. I kinda think that if they didn't suffer so much drain, that might do it. If they had a BOff power to buff their spike damage, that might do it too (BO is pretty weak with an array, especially considering how much it's drain reduces the rest of the damage).
