OK now we are getting somewhere!
Uh, I thought those things were supposed to be rapid reload? They appear to be topping out at the same speed as photons. The only way to know for sure would be to have a ship with room for 4 of them and see if it goes above 150. If it does not, I am not really sold on transphasic, the minor amount of shield penetration would not be worth the drop in DPS (I estimate that even with +30% it will still only be 85% of the DPS).

The single photon test however is very interesting, it shows (for the frist time) that going from 1 to 2 launchers does not result in diminishing returns, in fact, with 3 DOF's, there are slightly increasing returns. For science guys that looks very interesting, for escorts, it does leave the slight problem of getting those shields to drop so the torpedoes have something to hit. Maybe tetryon gilder...

All I want is two polarized tetryon dual heavy cannon, is that too much to ask?
