Don't even get me started with beam weapons.
Well, do keep in mind that the devs want quantums and photons to be more appealing to players. Lore says that is what should be used most of the time.

But, yeah, ignoring cost, they all need to be about equal. That way, people interested in saving points will use the cheap options, as fits the lore, and those that want to fit the lore will be rewarded with saving some skill points. Meanwhile, those after a particular effect will just pay the extra 900 or 1800 points, which really isn't that much. 900 points is 2 less ranks in T5 skills, for example, something you won't really even notice the difference of.
