Arnt i supposed to be dealing more damage with the Heavy Plasma/Disruptor Cannons and Dual Beam Banks?
Ur math must be wrong maybe your not taking crits and power drain into account, Google search STO Combat log parser and get a friend to let u shoot at him, the parser will tel u ur DPS
Yes beams are powerful but in all Cases DHCs top em
