This would still allow them to use the 25-125 weapons setting to reflect how much of your power is actually diverted to fireing weapons. Just an idea. But then it would have to have some difference for shields/engines/aux to reflect the increased power output.

Yes, better ships get a stronger warp core, but they also get stronger weapons, so, while it would make sense to have it scale back the higher tier of ship, it would also *not* make sense.
