I don't use Heavies at all. Just the Quads, and 2 regular Duals, plus a Q Torp. I have an effective BOFF Layout, including the Ensign tactical.

I'm just switching out my GW for Repulsors, since those damnable spheres ignore GW anyway, on Elite.

It's almost like they're suggesting we put beams on this ship. How do I say this ...hell no. Heavy Cannons and Turrets go on an Escort.
And if you didn't know, Rapid Fire, and Scatter Volley both work with turrets, so there's no need for a turret exclusive power.

I know that. They're not available at the ensign level. That's the point.

However, I agree... Ensign Tactical is a waste. It would be far better off with an Ensign Sci or Engineering if it MUST have an Ensign.
On my defiant-r.. I don't even slot a BOFF in the tac ensign slot. It is redundant at that point for an all cannon ship. Cryptic needs to rethink all cannon ships a bit.

Hey, if you're still interested, try this:

It's an Advanced Escort build that utilizes the MVAM mode for maneuverability.

Maybe the console stations are fine, but overall the ship is not. Having a cd on the modes is pointless, but that's another topic.
