I'm not sure if anybody mentioned it, but: when you use this weapon with High Yield torpedo abilities, the drain effect changes to 100% chance for -50 drain in weapons and engine for 12 seconds. The normal torpedo is extremely "meh" because of its low damage, long cooldown, and small chance of affecting the target... but when you High Yield it, it is fabulously useful as a control/disable ability.

Though like somebody pointed out, watch out, because you can splash yourself with it. The damage is trivial but that -50 power drain is not fun.
