The Cutting Beam is superior to a turret for STFs regardless of any power drain mechanics, due to targets with lots of hulls. There's also no travel time and it fires fairly quickly. Mine parses generally at x1.5 to x2 the damage of one turret.
Keep in mind, however, that Cutting Beam benefits from NO tactical consoles. If I recall, the Turrets end up being better than the Cutting Beam because of the tactical console stack.

Also, it doesn't get any benefits from Cannon or Beam skills.
