I disagree. With their rapid fire rate, and frankly very respectable base damage when compared with other torpedoes, photons make a hybrid torpedo boat/gunship build very plausible. With only an APB3 and an adapted Maco 2-piece (no photon consoles) I'm routinely pushing 20k+ crits every torpedo GCD while still carrying two DHCs up front. Blowing every CD I've been able to get into the 40-50k range.
With a bit more crit-related optimization and/or boff-reskilling I think I could probably tack on another 10-15k to that number.
