Since there are "only" 4 cannons fore and 4 turrets aft, and so few tac consoles i want to have as many useful effects as possible.

I have been thinking about plasma, but since it cannot utilize the "Romulan Singularity Harness" to get the additional 7.6% plasma Damage, and i am not sure if plasma weapons get the additional bonus from romulan "Threat-Scaling Science Consoles", because i have read that they only deliver 2.5% chance for a Plasma DoT effect when using non-Plasma energy weapons. Still the Plasma proc is tempting IMO.

The only thing i would do different would be to use 2 parts of the "Omega Adapted Borg Technology Set" which would be "Cutting beam" in the rear + the Borg console. To get "Omega Weapon Amplifier" effect once in a while.

Since the Galaxy -R isn't capable of using DC or DHC it will naturally not do as much as much damage as comparable Klingon ship (or ANY other ship) by far. So what would be the logical choice for such an underpowered ship?

Is there a way i momentarily don't see to utilize its Engineering + Science Consoles to tease out some more offensive power?

It's a shame one has to ask such questions in connection with a Galaxy Class.
well, phasers are an old favorite, and i just like using them on fed ships for RPer like reasons. to get the most out of DEM though, disruptor. to get the most out of tet glider, tetyron. ether hybrid would work well too. this ship isn't likely to be hitting hull directly through a down facing, so the cutting beam is of little use. that goes for anything not using DHCs really.
