Just be thankful they never added re-modulation to space fighting against the borg, which would be canon as well.

Besides, think about this for a moment. 95k for a heavy 2 plasma torpedo.

Striking a ship with an average of 30% hull kinetic resist (If you're smart to add resistance consoles for stfs). Plus shields reducing the effectiveness of kinetic attacks instantly significantly lowers the overall damage that torpedo can do. If they lowered it too much, it wouldn't be a high end threat, it would be a tickle that escorts would laugh off and nobody would think twice about taking the hit.
Actually... I am in favor of giving the borg more teeth...; but not necessarily one-shot kills... although i don't mind them... they need to have more sustained damage rather than spike damage in their general weaponry... shielding needs buffed, as does the hull.

I also think bringing back some of the old style STF elements (maybe at the Elite Level), such Sphere guardians with every probe spawn at Khito... etc...
