Oh no, this is DEFINITELY a science vessel weapon. With lack of overall tactical slots for science ships not named "Vesta," any weapon that can tick up damage without needing them is vital. Coupled with shield subsystem targeting, suddenly big tough ships start melting when the cutting beam comes down on them. My fleet research ship has certainly jumped in power just swapping out a single rear beam array.
