So you are assuming then that the cannons do more damage than all of the other cannons already in game? Why?

For all you know, its just an ordinary dual heavy phaser cannon with a different firing animation than the standard dual heavy phaser cannon animation. How bout we save the whining until we know something one way or the other?
QFT! .

I'm guessing that's just a graphic. It doesn't look like the fire rate is any faster than the normal cannons, it's just there are four of them instead of two. I would guess that this is a Defiant specific graphic, but I wouldn't mind if all Dual Phaser Cannons now spit out four bolts instead of two.

Honestly, I have said that the Dual Cannons seem puny next to the Dual Heavy Cannons, which make that much larger shot. If Dual Cannons fired four shots and Dual Heavy Cannons two big ones... yeah, yeah, I could go for that...

Yep. Sounds about right to me.

It's certainly consistent with the four-winged BoP variant which is pending. So the cannon will use four hardpoints instead of the traditional two now. Console or not, it will be interesting to see how those weapons are interpreted on starships other than these two examples.

I really wish they would change the graphics for all the DHC. I hate the way at close range it almost looks like canon spread. The DC seem more focused, which is what i would expect from a highly advanced and futuristic energy based weapon system. But than again, look at the pulsewave, eek!

This will be an awesome cosmetic change. I hope it doesnít mess with the damage output or power settings. I donít want any changes on the defiant. Donít want to give defiant haters more reasons to cry.
