Yes, I know that, because I have all this weapons.
But I can combine this Ferenei or Quantum Wide angle wepaon with my Torpedo skills.
Not possible for that Cutting Beam!

@lianthelia
Valid point, but please be aware, the proc is not per SHOT it is per weapon cycle!
Which is the same for the borg Cutting Beam: one shot one cycle, because the Cutting Beam is a constant beam!
So this means with every 40th shot of your beam you get the proc (as an average value).
I am not fully sure, but this means every ~ 160seconds you can see this proc for 3 seconds.
Too bad if you BOff skills hare on cooldown during that 3 seconds...
Except that its 360 degree so it has an advantage over the 180 weapons. And dont forget just because it doesnt fit your build doesnt make it useless. I could see this as a valid choice for a shield stripper build.

The firing cycle is also 4 shots (toggle 4 max) so not that bad and if you paired the omega proc with cannons it would go off much more often
