The only true way to fix it is a complete remake of the mechanics in all honesty as the possible variables get too large to properly balance them at all ends of the spectrum but beyond that little detail...

I get around 650 or so per tick (x that by 10 since theres 10 ticks) on my tachyon beam 3. Maybe you're just not specd right?
Resist skills are applied to each ability with an independent effect. Just like skills boost powers by different amounts depending on the skill and ability in question. In other words they can increase PIs effectiveness against Tachyon Beam without changing how it works against any other power. Just like they have several times in the past with things like syphon drones and something else I'm forgetting.
