Phasers are good for causing subsystem damage (if critical), but otherwise offer generally decent DPS. I have a star cruiser (the new Odyssey), and use anti-proton beams myself, which are just a nice way to flay the crap out of whatever you're broadsiding.

Anti-proton? You can craft, and buy them, but I've never seen them drop as loot.
The best of them, are the Borg ones.
