Phantomwolf is wise. Very wise. Yeah, this is what you have to do. Shoot down incoming torpedoes.

Note that the Undine ship fires both normal plasma torpedoes, and High Yield plasma torpedoes.

The normal plasma torps aren't targetable. Only the High Yield plasma torpedo is targetable; this is a big glob of plasma that registers on your UI as a separate entity.

(The Undine ship is using a version of a standard ability/weapon in the game. If you, later on, equip Plasma Torpedoes on your own ship and use the High Yield tactical power, it'll fire a slow-moving giant ball of plasma that can be targeted and shot down.)
