Basically I am thinking of adding a Dual Beam Bank, the new Time Console, changing up Rapid fire with Scatter Volleys and High Yield Torps with Spreads. Would give my ship about the same firepower and maneuverability as a Jem Bug with the Jem Set and Polaron weapons. First is my current set up after is what I'm planning.

Current:
Tac1: Tac Team 1, High Yield Torp 2, APO1, CRF3
Tac2: Torp Spread 1, CSV1, APO1
Tac3: Tac Team 1
Eng: Engi Team 1, RSP1
Sci: HE1, TTS2

Forward Weapons: Phaser Quad Cannons, 2x Fleet Advanced Phaser DHC [Acc], Fleet Advanced Quantum Launcher [Acc]
After Weapons: 3x Fleet Advanced Phaser Turrets [Acc]
Borg Deflector
Omega Engines MK XII
Omega Shields MK XII
Engineering Consoles: Borg Console, Armor (Depends on what I'm doing), Cloak/Subspace Jumper/Isometric Charge
Science Console: 3x Field Generators MK XI blue
Tactical Console: 5x Phaser Relay

Planned Build:
Tac1: Tac Team 1, Torp Spread 2, Beam Overload 3, Cannon Scatter Volley 3
Tac2: Torp Spread 1, APB1, Cannon Scatter Volley 2
Tac3: Tac Team 1
Eng: Engi Team1, RSP1
Sci: HE1, TTS2

Forward Weapons: Phaser Quad Cannons, Fleet Advanced Phaser DHC [Acc], Fleet Advanced Dual Phaser Beam Bank [Acc], Fleet Advanced Quantum Launcher [Acc]
After Weapons: 3x Fleet Advanced Phaser Turrets [Acc]
Borg Deflector
Omega Engines MK XII
Omega Shields MK XII
Engineering Consoles: Borg Console, Armor (Depends on what I'm doing), New Time Console

I disagree with removing CRF as doing so loses you some valuable focused damage (even more so when used with a high yield torp) My MVAE and patrol escort both have the ability to take down a CSE negh'var in under 20 seconds thanks to this skill combo (plus a ton of other tac skills)

I figured the Racial 10% Acc (Fed Klingon) and the Acc from the Fleet weapons would help with focus damage. Cannon Scatter Volley with lots of buffs to Accuracy from what I understand can be just as or more devastating then same level Rapid Fire even on multiple targets. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

So how about just switching out one of the APO with a Beam Overload 3, the Dual Beam Bank and the Time Console?

Tac1: Tac Team 1, High Yield Torp 2, Beam Overload 3, CRF3
Tac2: Torp Spread 1, CSV1, APO1
Tac3: Tac Team 1
Eng: Engi Team 1, RSP1
Sci: HE1, TTS2

Forward Weapons: Phaser Quad Cannons, Fleet Advanced Phaser DHC [Acc], Fleet Advanced Dual Phaser Beam Bank [Acc], Fleet Advanced Quantum Launcher [Acc]
After Weapons: 3x Fleet Advanced Phaser Turrets [Acc]
Borg Deflector
Omega Engines MK XII
Omega Shields MK XII
Engineering Consoles: Borg Console, Armor (Depends on what I'm doing), New Time Console (plus turn rate, crit hit and crit sevarity)
Science Console: 3x Field Generators MK XI blue
Tactical Console: 5x Phaser Relay

nah, the only reason one gets SV is to hit multiple targets much of the firepower is wasted in the process hence I use it in conjunction with tac buffs and TS

Ended up going with the complete Temporal Warfare set, DPS may be a bit lacking then my main Defiant build, but its still fun to use. Switched to AP dual heavy, got the special dual beam bank and but a Chroniton torp up front and two turrets aft with the temporal device. I ended up adding an EPS because of the beams power drain was killing my DPS even more and got rid of the armor, no choice unless I want to get rid of the 2 piece Borg set bonus. So I have 2 Omega, 2 Borg and 3 Temporal sets on my ship OMG awesome. FYI, I so want the Mobius now to add a Grav Well with the Gravametric bonus the Borg and Temporal set give me. I can see the Fleet Advanced Escort really working well with it.
