a quick question. the different weapon types (phaser,disruptor,plasma and etc) other than the different special effects, do they do the same amount of DPS at the same levels?

Yes and no.

The energy ones have the same base DPS.

But the damage type specific skills become available at different levels, so phasers and disruptors will do more damage in the Commander range than the others. And the admiral level ones are pretty much screwed, as you only have enough points to get 16 skill levels at that range, which means you cannot train the damage type and starship weapon systems performance fully.

i'll better rephrase the question, just in case ppl dont quite get what the question is.

Already answered that But I'll repeat it.

The energy ones do the same base DPS. Projectile ones vary.

the different weapon types (phaser,disruptor,plasma and etc) other than the different special effects (Including the effect of different weapon type, ie 250 degree firing arc arrays or 45% firing arc banks) , do they do the same amount of BASE DPS (that is before any special effect of player level, bo levels and console/racial bonus) at the same levels?

Yes and yes, they do the same damage, they just differ in terms of visual effects and side-effects (debuff, procc etc.).

Firing arcs etc. just depend on the weapon archetype, i.e. all "Beam Arrays" have a 250 Arc, for example.
