You're a science ship. The point of the science ship is not to kill ships directly. The job a science ship has is to disable/drain shields, debuff enemies/buff allies, and generally wreak science-skill havoc in the combat zone. Oh, and shield-tanking like a boss.

If you must have torpedoes for damage-dealing, keep with the plasma torps. Good DoT damage, and you'll make opponents use their HEs. I would recommend keeping 1-2 beam weapons (perhaps one on each end) so you can use what target subsystem abilities you have. Just keep in mind that science ships are primarily a support-role ship, same as the Federation cruiser. The escorts are what you use for DPSing like a boss and killing the enemy.
