Cannons are not canon

I'd like to see the cannons (except turrets) taken away from ships except the fighters / defiants etc for the Fed side especially as it just does not feel trek. All they need to do is give a bigger bonus to the damage of beams done by an escort or maybe heavy beams, heavy dual beam banks.
The space combat feels more JJ Abrams Star Trek, like it's trying to be turned into Star Wars, which is essentially what I think he did with the films.
I will say though, the one nice thing about using 1 Dual Beam Bank on an escort is for Beam Overload.... you can really pack a punch and wipe out someones shield in one hit.
