Hello. Newbie here. While I've been an ardent reader of PvP forums over the last year, I've never found the courage to post. But I've been trying a new hybrid build concentrated around Particle Generators and I would appreciate you feedback. Especially concerning weapons, since these seem like the biggest concern for me (In a sense that they don't do much dmg). Energy is 100 Aux bias with about 40 into weapons, 30 into shields and 30 into engines. And I realize there are quite many shield heal powers in this build, but I tend to rely on BFI doffs and Reverse and cast TSS mostly on others.

Ship: Science Vesta Variant

Fore Weapons: 1x Fleet Advanced Dual Phaser Beam Bank [Acc]x2 [Dmg]x2
2x Aux Phaser DHC [Acc]x2 [Dmg]x2

Aft Weapons: 1x Fleet Advanced Phaser Beam Array [Acc]x2 [Dmg]x2
2x Fleet Advanced Phaser Turret [Acc]x2 [Dmg]x2

Deflector: Adapted MACO Mk XII

Engine: Adapted MACO XII

Shield: Elite Fleet Covariant [ResA]

Devices: Subspace Field Modulator

Eng: Neutronium Alloy Mk XII (Purple) / RCS Accelerator Mk XII (Purple)
Sci: 3x Particle Generators Mk XII (Purple) / 1x Emitter Array Mk XII (Purple) / 1x Field Generator Mk XI (Blue)
Tac: 3x Phaser Relay Mk XI (Blue)

Bridge Stations:
Lt. Tac. - Tactical Team I / Cannon Rapid Fire I
Lt. Eng. - EPtS 1 / Reverse Shield Polarity I
Ens. Eng. - EPtS 1
Cmdr. Sci. - Tractor Beam I / Transfer Shield Strength II / Gravity Well I / Feedback Pulse III
LtCmdr. Sci. - Science Team I / Hazard Emitters II / Transfer Shield Strength III

2x Shield Distribution Officer (Purple)
1x Sensors Officer (Purple)
1x Gravimetric Scientist (Purple)
1x Warp Core Engineer (Blue)

Should I ditch DBB for beam array, since I don't use BO and have beams mainly for subsystem targetting? Or switch to APD and remove that Sensors Officer? Or add another RCS? Any advice is appreciated.
