    Pretty much as the title asks. Are ship mounted Plasma weapons still viable? I am looking to potentially invest into fitting out a T6 fleet Mogh Battlecruiser with Plasma based weapons. Are they viable still competitively in terms of use? Looking into some builds to see what might work instead of going for Disruptors plus quad guns.

    They are viable but have few good weapons to choose, example: corrosive or romulan plasma types, this last one eat one mod for extra proc.

    They are Ok and will perform decent, but from a competitive point of view they are rather below the curve, the top three right now are Phaser, Disruptor and Polaron.

    Unless you're chasing DeePs, anything is viable if it gets the job done.

    The current meta is Phasers. I have been running antiproton for years because I like the pretty beam colors. There are people that stick to canon powers for the faction.
    Load up on power-type or weapon-type Vulnerability Locators/Exploiters, or Energetic Protomatter Matrix Infusers, and run anything you want.

    I would also recommend perusing the DPS League if you're after the sweet DeePs. The Mogh is the same build as the Arbiter, so you can hunt for either.

    I've noticed Phaser has been King with my Miracle Worker Tac ship on my Feddie. Performed quite allot better than expected.
