Ability: Photonic Shockwave Torpedo
Photonic Shockwave Torpedo is a space ability that upgrades your next Torpedo Launcher attack to a Photonic Shockwave Torpedo. It is only available on player ships equipped with the [Console - Universal - Nadeon Detonator]. With the 20th of December 2012 patch, the ability works with every type of standard torpedo weapon (previously it worked only with photon torpedoes). Specialized torpedos, like the Hargh'peng Torpedo Launcher and the Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedo Launcher, are unaffected by this Console.
The Photonic Shockwave Torpedo moves at the same speed as a normal torpedo and is not targetable. When it detonates it triggers a Photonic Shockwave that disables and repels targets in the area of effect.

While this ability is active and before it has been fully executed by launching a torpedo, abilities with which it shares a 15-second cooldown will not affect the launch of the Shockwave Torpedo. Thus, you may activate Torpedo: Spread 16 seconds after activating Photonic Shockwave Torpedo, but the Torpedo Spread will not modify the launch of the Photonic Shockwave Torpedo.
