You can try the research mod I made for myself. I balanced the tech's to my taste, and extended the 2nd tier tech's exp shatterforce laser to lvl 7 tech, and included the super tech's as well. (to add more flavor at the end game.)
Make a new folder in the customization files, (name it whatever you want.), unzip the attachment into that folder, start the game, change the themes to what ever you named the folder.
Notice, I balanced the tech's some what, titan beams, and torpedoes still are the best weapons. The Ai usually uses these, and the AI needs all the help it can get.
Wanted to make a moo Mod, but work tells me "no".
