The build below I tested out in several STFs and FFAs to determine peak DPS and average DPS. I am normally an Assualt Cruiser person however I get 6000+ DPS out of them. So I would enjoy feedback from those more into escorts so that I can tweak the build and improve upon.
This is not a PVP build but PVE.
Due to the lack of tanking ability I choose to use the XII Borg space set to improve survivability. The built in tractor beam also allows me to hold in place more manueverable targets once every 3 mins as well as adding to the hull damage.
Weapons Bats and Subspace field modulator
Assimilated Module, Zero-Point Energy Conduit, One of 3 Kumari Consoles
Sci Consoles: The other Kumari Consoles
4 Phaser Consoles *one XII blue the others XI blue*
1 Quantum Console *XI Purple*
Lt Sci: HE TSS
Cmdr Tac: CRFIII, HYIII, APD, Tac Team
Lcdr Tac: APO, CSVI, Tac Team
LT Tac: TSII, TSI
EN Eng: EPtS
Doffs *All Purple*
1% to strip 3 buffs on a target
2 of the reduce AP cooldowns
2 of the chance to reduce Cannon cooldowns
In testing I was able to get up to 8300 DPS peak averaged about 5900dps highest shot I was able to get was a 30k hit from the overloaded cannon. Something else that is very nice. If you get a sci guy to gravwell a large group and then hit them with an overload you are going to do a ton of damage spreadout. The extra tank provided from the borg space set made up for the lack of tanking Boff spots. I was able to scoot out of a fight and recharge my shields very quickly and get back into a fight.

I have never been a fan of mixing weapons types. At the same time the turret benifits from the CRF and CSV a beam would not. Also you miss out on being about to add the turret to your forward fire. I have however considered adding a torp to the back. Either the cluster mine torp or if it will go in the back the wide angle torp pretty sure thats a foward only torp.
Sorry about the mess guys just coming by to drop a post and spread a new idea.

Posed this in the Bug report link:
"lol this bastard child of DHC's is really a beam boat lol hahahahahahahahahaha I love it
Think about it, you can have free DHC's on this ship with its set bonus and then you can chose beam skills like Befaw, BO, or targeting and never miss a beat. My oh my oh my i actually think I will buy this thing now since I am major beam captain and this thing will be fun specially with my "Inertial Denial" Build.
How unorthodox, how interesting, how fun it will be, finally escorts have no choice atm but to be Beam boat DHC hybrids. I wonder if I will be credited with this discovery as I have done so many times in the past or if people will simple restate my own thoughts as theirs."
Can you imagine the quixhotic builds that could come from this? the three console set. 1-2 Dhc's in the front 1 torp 2 beams cutting beam in the back with another beam. Then you use the Ships sets and it puts all the cannon skills into cd but Cannons skills do not affect beam skills, correct? Correct. Then you can use befaw, spread, BO, or Target Shield or something. No nead to have Cannon skills when you get a set of them for free so technically you will have more tac slots for free right? While everyone else has LT Com and Lt tac slots you will be default have two LT comms and an LT slot. How op is that? and with a standard Patrol escort tank defense my god my god my god the pain we will rain down on our enemies. Think people think. You don;t let technicalities steal your game. You refine it to the rules they are forcing on you. While the world is playing checkers then we will play chess and you have to sacrifice a pawn to get a king. When you are given something bitter you do not cry over it, you rise above it and make lemonade. I will re-post this in another andorian build section and lets see what we can come up with. Maybe i will be heckled, maybe i will be lauded. Players will say Escorts shouldn't have beams. Why not? I have been running a patrol escort with beams since i started the game and i kill more players then I die to. You can try it or not i don't really care, changing the way the game is played, that sounds the most interesting to me. We'll just call it Ozifacation.
