I would say Quantums. As an Escort, you need to maneuvre a lot. You spent your DPS cycle nose on, yes, so high DPS photons would seem preferable, but I'm not sure you should really be spending more than 6 seconds at a timeCharging headfirst at an enemy, except during the opening stages of combat. In the rest of the time you should be weaving around trying to line up your next shots, punch through the shields, fire off a high-yeild Quantum then move away and re-ballance your shields.

That's the way I would play it but really I think most of the decisions in this game come down to personal play style and preference. I like the way the photons look, reminds me of the early movies
