Load beam arrays, preferrably with the experimental romulan beam so you can have eight arrays going at once with a manageable drain (sub that for a DBB or torpedo if you lack it). Fit a Fire at Will in your tac slots somewhere and keep EptW (and preferrably Aux2Bat and other weapon power increasers/weapon drain reducers) up at all times. Enjoy massive broadside damage for little effort.
Got a SC/Turret/Torpedo set on my Ambassador refit and actually manage to do pretty good with it in elite. Not on par with my escorts, but it's a viable set nonetheless.
