This is how for the most part beam weapons should be vs the current way being used atm.

Many shots / little damage = Not cannon " Currently being used "

One or two shots / lots of damage = Cannon " Should be used "

The current beam weapon mechanics do not reflect at all a beam user should be using. It should be much slower recharge times but much more damage.

It makes no sense firing 6 phasers at fast speeds only tickle a ship to death and that is provided you can.

The video above shows a very good example. Make sure to watch the whole thing though.
