Best to stick to the standard formula of one -S beam and one torpedo (Hargh'peng).
Huh, cause I did a duel beam, and I think a shuttle beam or a normal one. Took out those work bees just fine and quick. Same with the swarmers. That's without photonic fleet.

You can kill stuff just fine using beams alone.
