Indeed. Any ship that can fire quantums should be able to fire photons. But I suppose all photon tubes might not be reinforced enough to handle the different energy profile of a quantum. (feel free to prove me wrong)
I liked how Bridge Commander handled this issue. You had the option of loading quantums or photons, you just had to wait a while for your crew to swap them out if you wanted to switch during battle. I actually enjoyed having to return to starbase to restock torpedoes as well.
