And you forgot to mention that up until very recently, escorts with cannons could indeed unload and "evapourate everything" on a regular basis. I'm simply saying that torpedoes with the buff that the op suggests would be as devastating as cannons used to be.
No, you're saying they'd be as devastatnig as cannons currently /are/, except with a huge disability against shields and a slightly wider arc.

Even if a ship were firing the hypothetical 1 quantum torpedo a second, any ship with any kind of shield healing would hold up to that indefinitely. The way things are now, torpedoes are simply not a threat on their own.
