By my count, that would be one or two phaser arrays (for game terms, could probably bring it down to one) and the rest, photon torpedoes I think. Now, I know that this sounds like a truely bad idea, but is there some way this could work at end game? Run one or two high end copies of target shield subsystems, and have the rest be torpedo spread or high yield? Or are turrets on the back a must? With that much torp damage, would this deal with the unshielded nanite transfers/generators in STFs faster than usual?

Sorry for quasi newb-ness, but when I get this, I'd like to do something different with it.
I have something more 'cannon' akira that you are looking for. If you want some help just PM me. Mostly I have two phaser arrays because I can't get rid of them due to my BOFF skills...

I went with 1 DHC, 1 Quad cannon, 1 array, 1 torp fore,

2 torp 1 array aft.

Its ok. I wanted to make more of a torp boat. Ive been using the runabouts and the peregrin, decent, Ill try the deltas next for the shield dropping. Need some more dilitium for blue ones.

I like the ship alot though, and I have always used cruisers.

2 Antiproton DHCs, 2 Quantum Torpedoes in front

2 Antiproton Turrets, 1 Quantum Torpedo in back

I have a blue and a green torpedo Doff, and found the DPS to be impressive enough to adapt this for another escort flying alt.

I am missing the Commander Tactical and Torpedo High Yield 3 on my Armitage (Steamrunner,) but it is still very good. On my Defiant R it is bloody awesome!

I plan on replacing the rear quantum with a tricobolt. It makes for a great coup de grace on my Defiant R.

TorS = Torpedoe Spread (I think) 1 & 2 (what, no High Yield Torps? 0.o)
TT = Tactical Team
CRF = Cannon Rapid Fire 1 & 3
APO = Attack Pattern Omega
ET = Engineering Team
EPS = Emergency Power to Shields
RSP = Reverse Shield Polarity
HE = Hazard Emitters
TSS = Transfer Shield Strength

STOWiki has a list for your skills and your BOff skills to compare with the acronyms.

Would be kinda nice to have a glossary somewhere... heheh...

I am exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new civilizations in a galaxy far, far away...

I don't use that many Torps myself i instead use the +15 to Wep Power passive along with the Borg console to fuel 6 AP Beam arrays and use 1 Quantum Torp and my Peregrines 6 Full sized quantum torps plus my torp PD to deal heavy kinetic damage after 6 beam arrays bring it down i also use Aegis shield with Borg because its like Maco shield but stronger.
I admit that the AP proc sucks for now but im hoping that one day the game developers will actually Google Anti Proton and realize that destroying protons and destabilizing atoms means a Dmg bonus to armor, and the release of gamma radiation is also a possible Proc that could act like the Plasma one.
