Umm... I'm a little scared stepping into this furball, but here I go...

I see a lot of talk about PvP here, so I thought I'd bring in the perspective of someone who plays PvE almost exclusively here.
I actually kinda' agree with the thread's motion here, but I'm not sure I entirely agree with all of the original poster's proposed fix.

The issuse isn't the cannon. It's the glass.
From a PvE standpoint, this appears to me to be the core of the problem. My main is a tactical officer, and, barring my last two months flying an Ambassador, I've been a pretty steady escort captain.
Yes, having attack patterns boost the damage of science powers is a problem for science captains, but the core problem is when even an idiot like me can use a Patrol Escort to tank-- not kill, but tank-- a cube in KAS:E for a almost two full minutes. A more competent escort jock than I was at the time would have been able to waste that ship in less time, no tanking or heal-support required.

At least as far as PvE is concerned, I think tsurutafan has hit the nail on the head-- "the issue isn't the cannon. It's the glass."
