Also, would I take into account that each shot would still be affected by resistances in such???
So in theory, single cannons and beam weapons probably equate to the same overall damage???
STO Wiki has the information you want regarding DPS and DPV.
Procs and damage (including resistance) are calculated per shot, meaning that Cannons/Turrets have a much higher proc rate when under Rapid Fire. A Cannon/Turret boat can really put out a ton of procs with RF/SV. Combined with DEM, they're quite potent.
