Protonic Polaron Space Weapons?
 
Anyone know how these are different than normal polaron weapons and whether or not the polaron phase modulators will work with them? Additionally, will they be better than the elite fleet polaron cannons?

They're Polaron weapons with red flecks in the effect that have the "do proton damage" proc, with the boosted damage vs Voth for that proc. That's it.

I doubt they're better than Elite Fleet anything, but it's worth noting that there's nothing in the game yet that heavily stacks Proton damage resistance (and even some items that drastically REDUCE proton damage resistance), so thanks to the proc you can get a few hits in that can cause additional damage.

Compare that with the STF shields that reduce plasma and disruptor damage and the large number of armor consoles that do the same, which reduces the effectiveness of weapon sets like Romulan plasma etc.
