This is right on the money, just because a torpedo launcher is listed as higher DPS overall doesn't mean that it will be in actuality. Having all phasers (and disrupters etc) is a far better way to go at first because you have no wasted damage. Remember that you cannot use torpedoes effectively on a ship until the shields are down.
