Great calculator! Love to see the base DHC/DC debate settled, at least for the vast majority of cases.
One thing I'd like to see added, which hopefully would be relatively easy, is the [Borg] weapon mod. That one feels like it should throw more of a wrench once more into the DC/DHC balance. Most people seem to anecdotally disagree, feeling that DHC are still superior, though no one has data beyond "my combat parser says." It's an odd duck, as it basically adds +25 damage per bolt/beam pulse (2.5% chance of 1000 damage), regardless of power setting, weapon type, etc. Weapons with a higher rate of fire therefore benefit more, and it has a bigger proportional effect at lower weapon power levels.
