I did hear this quite a while ago though, and it's entirely possible that this has changed and is no longer true, but as I haven't heard of any changes since I read that, I have been assuming that this is still the case.
Hm. I shall have to give that a try, see what my numbers look like. So, in theory, with my EPW2 giving 33 power or so, I could park my weapon power at 105 and still see optimal 8 beam DPS? That'd free up a lot for shields, or even Engines! Darn my Sovvie's turn rate to heck.
Edited to Add: While I'm at it, does FAW drain energy faster? It seems to, but I couldn't tell if each extra shot added weapon drain - Against a single Borg Cube with FAW2, I couldn't quite tell. I might have to actually put Nadion Inversion on my skillbar, though!
