The build below I tested out in several STFs and FFAs to determine peak DPS and average DPS. I am normally an Assualt Cruiser person however I get 6000+ DPS out of them. So I would enjoy feedback from those more into escorts so that I can tweak the build and improve upon.
This is not a PVP build but PVE.
Due to the lack of tanking ability I choose to use the XII Borg space set to improve survivability. The built in tractor beam also allows me to hold in place more manueverable targets once every 3 mins as well as adding to the hull damage.

1% to strip 3 buffs on a target
2 of the reduce AP cooldowns
2 of the chance to reduce Cannon cooldowns
In testing I was able to get up to 8300 DPS peak averaged about 5900dps highest shot I was able to get was a 30k hit from the overloaded cannon. Something else that is very nice. If you get a sci guy to gravwell a large group and then hit them with an overload you are going to do a ton of damage spreadout. The extra tank provided from the borg space set made up for the lack of tanking Boff spots. I was able to scoot out of a fight and recharge my shields very quickly and get back into a fight.

I have never been a fan of mixing weapons types. At the same time the turret benifits from the CRF and CSV a beam would not. Also you miss out on being about to add the turret to your forward fire. I have however considered adding a torp to the back. Either the cluster mine torp or if it will go in the back the wide angle torp pretty sure thats a foward only torp.
If anyone is interested I have 2 builds for both the Fleet excel and the Assualt refit that get very good DPS for cruisers. The Excel is based on a plasma build and single point DPS over AOE. With that I have gotton BOIII hits for 60k. The Assualt cruiser build uses spiral disrupters and a combination of FAW and BOs. Each setup nets about 6000 peak raw DPS.
