Yeah, Cryptic are sort of "Damned if they do, and damned if they don't" on this issue. If they tune the cannons to be the most powerful in the game, then they get hit with the "Pay to Win" tag, and if they leave the premiere weapons obtainable through very rare drops (DHC [Dmg x3]) then everyone poo-poos the new guns and doesn't want to buy them.

Personally, I'm loving them on my new Captain. I don't care that I lost a DHC slot. The cathartic grin I get every time those suckers fire is worth it if I'm playing casual PVE, DSEs, exploration or regular missions. If I enjoy the game more while playing actual mission content then I don't really see the downside. I'm having more fun, and that's all that matters.

...In PVP, well sure, replace them with a DHC if you so choose, but I have no complaints. More so as my stipend paid for half of it.

Thanks for the info guys and gals.

Personally, I do not see the big terror in this case if they were slightly better. As I understand it: They are unique. So yay... If someone had ONE cannon SLIGHTLY better than its DHC counterpart it would not effect PvP that heavily. By comparison to some of the other things that have come out recently it is not even CLOSE to having a notable effect.

They're fine for levelling, which is more their purpose than top level stuff. That said, it's pretty ridiculous we can't have canon cannon visuals on our Defiants for 'endgame' any other way
