The bioship is a peculiar weapon; networked together in small groups they are capable of wiping out entire planets with a single blast, but when Voyager first encountered them the ship survived a direct hit from a bioship. Now it's possible that that ship was not capable of firing on maximum, since it was stated to be damaged. But that doesn't sound quite right to me, and when I had a close look at my second image I realised that the central bioship in the planet killing scene is quite a bit bigger then the others. I think that the bigger ships either provide most of the firepower in the networked state, or that they somehow magnify the fire from the rest of the ships. Unless and until we learn a bit more about the bioships I can't really make any kind of call on this, so I've just left it hanging without explanation for the moment.
