On my bridge officer?s skill tree it lists Beam Target Shields Subsystems? which leads one to believe that ?Beams? would be the only weapon to be effective.

However in sto wiki it shows a redirect to ?Target Shields Subsystems? with no mention of ?Beam? weapons at all. That would leave one to believe that Cannons would also be effective.

The proper name is "Beam:Target Shields Subsystem".

It works with Beam Arrays and Dual beam banks only. It does not work with the Cutting Beam.

Home that is clear enough.

you are right. After a closer examination of the text in stowiki I found area that noted that this ability only enhances BEAM weapons. Since the word BEAM was removed from the title I had a small squeak of hope that cannons would be able to take advantage of this skill. Sadly not..

Darn fine print, but at least it?s an absolute rule.
