Cannons are too energy-efficient (fire forever at max power)

One thing I am seeing as a regular tactic is people going from full impulse to 10k and,starting fighting immediatly... people just dont realise the massive drain on all systems, meaning weapons can stop firing ages before they do with a full lot of energy. A few seconds of full impulse can reduce all energy levels to 5
Off on a slight tangent I know, but makes a hell of a difference when using high enery weapons.
