Remember Photons won't do much damage when their shields are up. What kind of other weapons do you have. I'd recommend a beam array on the fore and aft. Turn your ship broadside to them, so both fore and aft beam arrays can hit the target. Put weapons power on maximum. Fire until their shields come down, then turn into them and fire your Photons.
