Sorry if I am sounding like a complete noob.

So far I have the omega deflector and Borg console
Its been a while since I crunched the numbers, but I think 6 points in flow capacitors gets you around 22 bonus damage per shot if you max your consoles.

Antiproton weapons are more useful for escorts; dual heavy cannons hit harder to begin with, so their crits are extra hard with AP. If you're using single beams, which all cruisers should be except for a few very specific builds, then because they have a lower base damage the AP proc is less useful unless you get a lucy shot with BO3. I think tetryon beams would be better for your build. While you're grinding out the sets, a Tachyon deflector array will boost flow capacitors slightly, especially if you can find one with the [FlwC] modifier.

You command such a cruiser differently than a broadside build. In fact. you mostly fly directly at the target or away from it.

Thanks in advance
Complete the Jem set. You can do this on your own and not have to worry about the rare drops from STFs.

The most entertaining thing about the STF sets is that you can only get them through doing STFs and they tend to be tweaked to help you do ... more STFs. You can do everything else just super duper fine in this game without those sets.

Example: Finishing up levelling in your Colonial tier in DOFF missions. You can do that floating in space in a shuttle.

Example: Doing your B'Tran daily mission. You can do that just fine using Mk I shields and deflectors.

Example: All those ground missions where you don't even use a ship.
