Two different types of damage are applied by weapon in STO.
Beams are designed for sustained High Damage Per Volley attacks with low DPS.
Cannons are designed for Burst Damage Per Second attacks with low DPV.

That is only true when applied to anything outside of DHC bitemepwe.
Comparing a DHC to a BA shows a fairly large gap.
