No, my point is that he THINKS his hull resist is that high... it's possible that occasionally wierd values get used instead of the proper one, etc.
the amount of damage dealt is just too high. 166k is near enough three times the total hull HP of an Odyssey and the Odyssey HP is higher than anything else (Fed side at least), add in the fire from the Raptor's and the Cube's (as well as the Cube's shield drains) and it's hard to be in a position to regularly take that hit, which is unfortunate as the NPCs spam Plasma torpedoes every four seconds.
According to the devs only high yield shootable torps from tactical cubes should be able to get anywhere close to that... not normal torpedos from these other ships. That indicates that something screwy is going on in their calculations, not that torpedos are too strong.... since, as you note, they'd never create a torpedo that strong deliberately.
