Bah, as a Sci captain, I'll declare outright that damage is king. Who cares if a Tachyon Beam III strips 4000 shields per facing every 30s? A round off my weapons at 100 power does the same in less than 4 seconds and you want to bore through a single facing ASAP. Against a very resistant shield, yeah that Tachyon Beam may do more but that doesn't happen in STFs.

I was under the impression that the DoT effects don't stack. If that's the case, the high RoF of a cannon escort is going to overwrite the procs. Better off with increasing crit and getting damage that is good all round and doesn't care how fast it's coming.
