  How many single damage "shots" does it do in a second?  Thanks.

Well I doubt anybody knows how many crew you lose each second of flying directly in front of a a VUX ship. But I do know that if you tap the fire button while an enemy ship is dirrectly in front of you, the enemy will lose 1 crew.

Well, it eats 1 battery unit per shot, so:
  • Fire continuously for 1 second, starting with full batteries
  • See how much juice is used after 1 second, that is how many shots it can fire in 1 second.
By my estimation it goes through half of its batteries in one second on continuous fire.  VUX has 40 batteries, so about 20 shots per second.  Your Mileage May Vary.

  Well, I was hoping that someone elbow-deep in the source code would have an answer, is it is pretty difficult to time 1 second precisely.

Yes that's why I said I doubt anybody would know. The game isn't programmed to take enemy crew for every second of being in front of the lazer. So, unless you get someone who's good with math (which i'm not) you won't find your answer.
