Wow Nagorak. This gets me thinking in new ways.

So, what you have tested is how dps is affected by energy consumption. I have an ancillary question.

Is energy a fixed total quantity for all sub-systems? For example, if I am firing my 3 beams and also want to transfer emergency power to shields while the beams are firing, does that mean that I"m getting less regen to shields ? I would think no. I have not seen anywhere that energy is a fixed quantity. The 3 sub-systems seem to be working independently each with their own independent reserve of energy (with the possibility to favour one sub-system with more energy through the HUD).
