Bang, done.
Pretty much, but there are exceptions. For example, you can get the Zero Point Energy Conduit without doing anything multiplayer, so that would definitely be good and should probably replace an armor. Also, science ships probably should be running other things besides just Field Generators in their science slots to boost whatever abilities they're using. The Isometric Charge console is also kind of fun if you can get it for a decent price off the Exchange. It is sometimes recommended to use a mix of Field Generators and Emitter Arrays, but what mix is actually the best depends on an enormous variety of factors, and it's hard to give a really definitive answer even knowing everything. And of course, if you're running a torp boat get consoles to boost your torps instead of the energy weapons you're not really using.
