All my toons (including my Sci VA) use that weapon against Borg, but IIRC, it does piddly unmodified damage (~51 DPS?). The big pluses it offers are the shield penetration and the shoot-through-hard-cover ability. Borg-hunting in a facility is more fun when you can pop out, squeeze off a shot to get a target lock, then run back into the hall and keep shooting at them through the wall.

It *does* help when seeking that Kinetic Killer accolade, but given the small amount of damage it does, it still takes about three geologic ages unless you're rolling with a Tac. That said, Tacs can deal out *horrendous* amounts of damage with that thing when it's properly buffed.
