Which ship weapon types work better?
I'm earning up exploration badges to get MK IV gear on my cruiser. Currently using 3 phaser arrays, and they work just fine, but now plasma are available too and I'm not sure which would work better.

I'm also somewhat curious about the viability of turrets.

Somewhat annoying that there are so many different flavors of weapons and so little info on what the difference is...

You can only put on one plasma dot from all your arrays. If it procs again all that happens is it refreshes. Is that worth more or less to you than -10% resists or a random chance to turn off a sub-system.

Plasma torpedoes can be worth it for the dot, but not energy weapons.
