oh and beams and cannons do need review, my ship shouldn't be shooting 5-8 of them, i should be shooting 1 beam or volley with the power of 5-8. weather out of arrays or banks, star trek ships almost never shoot more then 1 or 2 shots at a time, any youtube clip will show this. hopefully eventually there will be time to adjust stuff like this so ship combat finally has a star trek look.
Completely situational, actually. I will agree that when fighting against a single target (or focusing a single target), ships should fire volleys (i.e. Galaxy class firing a single high-power beam) instead of 5-8 weapons at once.
However, there are situations where firing a bunch of weapons is useful. For example, fighting a carrier's minions.
is canon support for firing many weapons at once.
