I read in the Escort Fit Thread that Cannons/Heavy Cannons supposedly don't do their full damage when at a distance larger than 2km. However, I couldn't find any information on this anywhere else and also clearly the game does not tell you about this so I was wondering if it was actually true?

Yes. This is the case with ALL energy weapons.

It should be noted the cannon damage drop off is much steeper than beams. Cannons you want to be within 2km if possible, but definitely beyond 5km is seriously hurting DPS.

Wow ok, thanks for the info guys... it's good this is so well documented in the game... not

But I guess my usual strategy of staying away from em cubes to not blow up with them needs revising now

Fighting Borg i would not recommend getting any closer than 5-6Km unless you're doing a burst run. You're much more likely to get hit with a plasma torp or get held by a tractor. Also the Borg are more likely to focus fire on you. I've been able to sit back even 8-9KM where they don't even target me and ping away at them. It takes a bit longer to take one down but i don't take any damage so it's worth it.
