    Personally I use phasers as there are plenty of options to buff that damage type and not to mention alternative rep gear energy types (typically phaser) and the nice Trilithium enchanced phaser set from the Nexus mission.

    Romulans canonically use Disruptors.

    I voted Disruptors. Phasers are top of the heap at the moment (iirc), and if I was Fed in a Starfleet ship I'd go with Phasers.

    I've been tooling around in a T6 Scim as a Romulan for ages now though, and Disruptors are a close second anyway. Plus I have all the nice Cardassian toys and consoles, and my Spiral Waves are a delicious golden color that goes well with the TTFDBA's golden-red.

    In the show they used Disruptors and Plasma Torps, in the game the Empire does that too, but the Republic is full Plasma.

    If you build your ship right, Phaser are about 1% better than Disruptors Wink

    I heard Phasers on the very high end are doing close to even 2% higher than any other energy type.... If that's true that's pretty impressive.

    I keep an extra ship with different types of weapons for the oddballs for the Endeavor system, like tetryon or antiproton.

    I use them all.

    The energy type top is as follows:

    Phaser
    Disruptor
    Polaron
    Antiproton
    Plasma
    Tetryon

    The favorite type of damage is radiation though. Kemo, secondary deflector, terran weaponry are all radiation sources. Just like Chernobyl.

    As much as I like phasers, I really like antiproton. I spent some time getting my defiant all antiproton with antiproton slots. If I ever had a lot of free time on my hands again like I did years ago, I would consider switching to phasers or at least having a set available to switch to. For ground I have antiproton and sniper phaser with all my boffs using phasers.
