Or if you really want to keep the A2SIF you could get a Mirror DSSV from the exchange for about 60k ec and give up one of your ensign sci abilities.
I also have to say, I'm not a fan of broadside sci ships. The way I look at it, your Tachyon Beam requires you to go facing I believe 10 seconds out of every 30, that means that for at least 12 seconds of every 30 you're out of your max DPS arc. This is why the DBB/turret thing is so popular, it allows you to stick with the max DPS arc while using your abilities. I always used to do single cannon/turret myself, with one torp, until the Vesta came out.
Good advice on the weapons, I've always found myself more effective in a sci ship running either 2X DBB or 2X single cannons with a torpedo.
