I'm an engineering officer in command of an Odyssey Operations Cruiser.
I've been debating whether to fit 4 or 6 beam arrays to my ship. The increased power drain from using multiple arrays seems to imply that using 6 would result in a net loss in dps output compared to using 4 arrays.
Is it worth fitting transphasic torpedo bays only? Does the increased shield penetration offset the fact that once the enemy's shields are down, the overall dps output is much lower than when using photon torpedoes?
Phased Tetryon Beam Arrays, or Phased Polaron Arrays?
