I wish people understood one thing about Dual Cannons.

Yes, they have a lot of DPS listed but they eat a lot of power and they have small firing arcs ... they work on Escorts because a Escort can aim them ... cruisers cannot, ask the Galaxy-X and Bortas Captains how they feel about Dual Cannons as they have awful turn rate.

Putting a Dual Cannon to the Sovereign would be like adding a Commander Tactical Station ... its giving it something it cannot use, after all why would you want a Commander Tactical Station were all Tactical BO skills at that level are either Patterns or Cannon skills.

Its not a Escort, even if they put Saucer Separation it will still not be a Escort.

agreed. Anyway back on topic, i think the svy retrofit should have added weapon slots to. Canonly she is supposed to have 16 or 18 phaser banks and what 6 or 8 torpedo tubes?

Yes, but canon also says she does have a starboard, port dorsal and ventral arc.... We just got front and rear.

cannons have higher energy efficiency than any beam setup.
Because they do not bind the power for more than an instant.
