It was on hard, but then I can still defeat 4 Galors on Hard with a stock Ambasador...

ANYWAY.....getting back to the torp issue. The bug/feature sometimes works in your favor. It has something more or less to od with the velocity of the torpedo when delivered. If midaalder was destroyed moving at high impulse velocity, then that's weird. Galor and Keldon torpedoes have low travel speeds. So it's not to fast and not so slow...as a result, you get a completely clean and thorough shield penetration.

How is does it work for you? I never done it with any other torpedo except the stock Phased Plasma Torpedoes. You know how they're slow and track bad. However, when a full volley of them is hitting any target, it causes massive, if not, significant damage. You could say that the Phased torpedoes, and the cardassian torpedoes, sort of "fall" through an enemy's shield....sometimes.:lookaround:

I think he means those red ones the cardassians have later in the game. They are called phase torps or something like that...they┬┤re small and fast.

:confused: Those may be Photons. Both torpedoes are red. (I have the NCC-1701-G mod!) It is easy to get confused.

THey arent photons I know how a photon torp looks like. See it for your self, just select that Hybrid ship under Cardassian ships, and it has those torps. :fistpunch:

The bug (as I call it) also works the other way.

:uhh :Puzzled: :uhm: ...oooooookaaaaaayy... Let's see. Phased Plasma Torpedoes are not used by the cardassians.:lookaround: I can't believe you all didn't get it.

During the game...at the battle of Starbase 12. (You know...when you get to the base because many enemies are coming, and Graff says he can't give you full repairs. The Geronimo comes, and then the Enterprise...helping to fight off Cardassian and Kessok forces. Then the cardassian freighters warp in filled with plasma explosives to ram the starbase, when Enterprise and Geronimo leave.) After that situation and the vulcan ambassador beams aboard.

Once he is aboard and the dialog is over...Just dock with Starbase 12.

LOOK AT THIS:

-Phased: These torpedoes come few and far between, but pack one hell of a punch. Later in the game, the soverign class ship can hold some of these, but they can end up "misfiring" and destroying of your torpedo turrets, once in a while. (it is totally up to chance) They are carried as the standard torpedo on the Cardassian Hybrid, and there is no risk of the "misfire" problem happening on this ship. NOTE*These are not those Kessok slow-yellow crap torps*

The HYBRID uses the phased torps, and it a cardassian/kessok ship. No flaming - first warning - elminster

Nobody, but the player in the end uses Phased Torpedoes!
