A bug is in no way, shape or form a capital ship - it's the equivalent of a BoP (or Romulan scout).
Teaos wrote:But it has been seen to destroy Capital ships in a mere few shots, which puts its beam weapons on the same power level as the other Capital ships we have seen. Which is the salient point here.

Man for man, until very recently we've been almost as capable at projecting our power as you are, and will be your equal once the new carriers are commissioned. The difference is scale - the UK, on its own, could probably deploy and support a reinforced brigade strength expeditionary force for a limited period. The US routinely maintains two (IIRC) such forces constantly forward deployed.

Sure it was rammed in the end but I think that was a combination of the Bug being damaged and going down in glory and them not wanting to let the Odyssy crew escape and send a message. That means it has enough punch to push through the hull and deliver enough power o take down a GCS in minutes. Even the E-D would usually take longer to go critical.
