The Akira didn't fire spreads, it fired consecutively. The word "spread" was mentioned in describing the array of torpedo lauchers, since it has 15 independent launchers. Nothing said about a single burst of torpedos. It doesn't have one large torpedo bay that can fit five torpedos in it at a time. The Akira is not even supposed to be an escort, armed with cannons, like in this game but a Heavy Cruise that can launch small crafts.

The Prometheus says phasers and torpedos as armaments, and the only things making it special is it's multi vector system, regenerative shielding and it is the fastest warp ship in the fleet at the time. I'm sure if it had special torpedo abilities it would not have gone unmentioned.

STO has your head all screwed up on what's canon and what isn't. Go read Memory Alpha and Beta, to learn ships before you assume something.
