It's funny you should say all that. I took my lessons learned and turned my defiant retrofit into a torp boat. 2 breen clusters up front, 4 rapid-fires, and a transphasic mine in the back. The 16 transphasic mines are a thing of beauty, the shields help with the spillover damage, and moving all the time I fire front and back quickly and am able to drop the cooldown on the clusters enough to fire them pretty often.
I really like that boat. It's more maneuverable than a mirror-qin I tried to setup in a similar way.
Back on topic, now that I've setup my B'rel my way (no mines, torps in the rear), I'm doing much better. Yes, it's slower than cannons, but there are some really big booms. :-) More importantly, I can do a gravity well and a spread along with the breen mine and clear a few ships at a time with a bit of luck.
