The Plasma burn is probably the least powerful proc.
For raw power: Antiproton (red) gives a +20 inherent CrtD.
I personally use Phasers because many Federation special abilities and quest reward gear simply comes in phaser form. But for the last ounce of damage, go Antiproton or Disruptor.

Prefire Chambers: They got nerfed.
Every damage-type specific console gives more +%. +26% for Mk XI blue IIRC.
But generic Prefire for Cannons or the beam stuff for Beams give LESS since Season 5 so they can no longer be recommended.

Indeed. Polarize Hull and Hazard Emitters are using the same CD and you are making good use of Omega to run away. You inspired me! Though I recently went back to torpedoes, didn't use them either for quite some time.

k, I ended up with...

ENG - Emergency Power to Shields 1, Auxiliary Power to SIF 1
SCI - Sci Team 1, Polarize Hull 2
TAC - Tact Team 1, Torp HY 2, Cannon Rapid Fire 2, AP Omega 3
TAC - Tact Team 1, Torp Spread 2, Cannon Scatter Volley 2
ENG - Engineering Team 1

3 x Dual Heavy Cannons XI
1 x Plasma Torpedo Launcher XI
3 x Heavy Plasma Turrets XI
4 x Neutronium Alloy XI
3 x Plasma Infuser XI
1 x Plasma Automated Defence Turret

The two Tact Team 1s therefore are the only area I think needs improving

This is my latest setup, with Aux to SIF I inspired by Vexashen.

Andy, just go with 4 Tac Consoles, the automated defense thingie just lowers your damage output considerably.

Here we go.

I got rid over overlapping CDs with the setup suggested by Vex, i.e. I no longer have 3 Teams that fight for the same CD, only 2 that I run infinitely. I miss Polarize Hull, but well, can't have everything.

if i had one, i'd have both universal consoles with engineering. if any sci craziness hits me i would just evasive out of there since i cant cure it, assuming scramble doesn't screw up evasive. any conventional damage you would weather quite well though

I've been running mine with a pretty straightforward STF layout, based around phasers - I threw the quad cannon in there. It's pretty effective although I will admit that it looks a little wrong somehow. Am kind of tempted to either try switching over to AP weapons or go to a polaron loadout just so it looks cool and canon, even if it's not one of my favorite damage types.
