I love this build. It makes sense with lore and cannon and sounds fun to play. Largely this sounds like a great build for a federation battle carrier or heavy escort carrier. My only problem is that because escorts are so fast I am unsure how useful the broadside will be, badass yes. Usable i'm not sure. As an alternative I would suggest a bond device for a high yield AOE artillery round, like a high yield tricobolt torpedo. It could have maybe a 1 - 3 KM AOE range, a 5 min cooldown and fast moving (can't be shot down) that does 20,000 base kinetic damage, disables for 5 seconds, and does -10 all power levels for 30 secs (due to concussive force), and -700 all shields.
dayum! right on man! cryptic should give you credit for this!
I know right?! A year later....
Thank you Cryptic!!!

Name it Point blank artillary shield. Since its like how the US army uses artillary fired inbetween its enemies and soldiers as a shield.
Smaller radius keeps it from being OP but still manages to be useful. Gives the akira abilty to fire torps in all directions like it was intended to do as well.
Props to JT for being dead on with the photon blossom, too.
