OK, that raises another question - spread or high yield torpedo?
I played around with both, and while spread does less damage it makes pretty quick work of swarms of small ships which you run into a lot of. Spread with Quantums was popping birds of prey in a single volley sometimes when I was doing missions.
Is HYT better? I know it does more single target damage, but spread seems to be more useful as it can hit way more targets.
