Have you looked at DontdrunkImshoots testing on overclocked Weapon Power used with beams? You should, with EPTW be able to push your weapons power past 125 and see a benefit in increased damage for the effort.
Use some other abilities mentioned in the same thread and you can get some outstanding damage from beams with or without a Tactical Toon at the helm.

Cannons it seems do not benefit from this quirk in the mechanics of the game.
