It's called "Cannon: Scatter Volley".

But for some inexplicable reason, it's a higher-tier ability than Beam Fire At Will. If the devs think that cannon are so superior that they don't deserve analogous-to-beam skills in Ensign Boff stations, then maybe the OP is right; maybe turrets should get their own version, because turrets certainly aren't any more dangerous than beams.

People just don't think this stuff through.

Scatter Volley has the habit of hitting _all_ targets in the same area at once.
And SV also works with Dual Cannons and Heavy Dual Cannons, which are indeed more dangerous than beams.

Well, considering there's already a call out there for a beam turret (think what that'll do in combination with Fire At Will) why not pair it up with a Point Defense I / II ability that makes turrets open fire on anything that gets within 5 kilometers of you?

That'll clear a minefield in a big freaking hurry.
