If Cruisers want Heavy Beams whats wrong with Sci ships getting Auxiliary Beams?
You clearly haven't been subjected to a properly-executed gravity well + warp plasma + subsystem disable assault. Or how about a massive power drain + complimentary subsystem disable? Yes, there are counters, but sci powers are still rather effective in the right hands, especially in a team format (which is what PvP is supposed to be).
