As I already said, the quoted specs were total BS. Though a federation ship could have 25 "phaser banks," if they were not combined into long strips. Nor does having 25 weapons mean the ship has to have power to fire them all at once. No ship in canon is ever seen firing all their phaser arrays at once. The torpedo launcher count was more absurd in that regard, if for no other reason then because it would never be able to carry ammo for so many.
Unless they were mounted in single shot disposeable launchers, like rocket pods.

That would be a neat thing to see fire.

As for the ship...its would be a cool costume but I doubt it would be so...scorty..hmm new word.
