A large part of the FED-playerbase seems to think that slapping beam arrays on their ships is the best build this game has to offer.

It's mind-boggling how many beam Vestas and Steamrunners are out there ...
Or, they don't care about maximum gaming efficiency as much and prefer an authentic Star Trek look over the most un-Trek like armaments the game offers as top DPS build.

Show me one ship firing in canon that even looks remotely like what we get if we load up with dual heavy cannons and chain rapid fire and scatter volley.
Not even the Defiant did it in that an extreme way and used beams on the rear instead of turrets.

I know, it boggles the mind that Star Trek fans play the game to enjoy the world of Trek instead of being ueber in PVP, right?
