Does anyone know if there are resistances? Each weapons has it's own special 'ability' but what about on the receiving end?

There are definitely resistances. I'm afraid I haven't actually checked what the resistances of the various NPC ships are, and so can't say whether they vary by damage type, but it wouldn't surprise me.
You should be able to tell by looking at the combat log.
