  • The additional effects based on Torpedo type:
    • Transphasic torpedoes also apply a shield resilience debuff.
    • Romulan Hyper-Plasma torpedoes cause a second explosion 2 seconds after the first.
  • This ability is likely based on a tactic used by the U.S.S. Voyager against a Borg Probe in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Dark Frontier".
