Yeah well.. problem is twofold.. If Klingons start stacking beams, Id guess more Feds would use FBP, second.. As it is Id have to spend 1200 points in beams to get same bonus my cannons have.. Might be worth it though, or maybe I should just reroll.
Lastly, wouldnt the beams suck a lot more power than those turrets? I mean, I have EPS transfer and stuff, but still?
Yeah FBP could become a problem, but we are not at that point atm. If it gets overused by 100% Aux Sci Vessels it will get nerfed anyways.
Why do you have to spend 1200 points to get the same bonus as cannons? What do you mean?
For the power drain, EPS consoles are your friend (atm running a five beam Vor`cha with a single 2.5 EPS console, works fine).
