High-Yield plasma torpedo salvos are the D'deridex' special ability. What's wrong with that? Nothing different than having special consoles on C-Store ships. They are stonger but so incredible slow, that I can't even remember when the last one hit me. Also your fireing arc argument sounds quite funny when you think about the Feds Wide Angle Quantum Torpedo Launcher, doesn't it? Dare those evil NPCs, why do they have something only us players are allowed to have. How are we supposed to kill them now?

STO NPCs are stupid. They are so stupid that it's probably not possible to dumb them down any further, so you should be happy that there are a few NPC ships with at least a couple scripted abilities.
1) It was not Viral Matrix... I know it because there was no debuff icon when it happened, also the weapons went out first, then the engines when I tried to evade, not at the same time, so it was too fast for a recharge.

2) as for the fire arc on the torps, they have been doing that for months, so it is not the new console... and Heavy torps? For Heavy or High Yield torps there is no way to forie that many at one time. Have you ever fired a high yield plasma? it becomes a single slow projectile... which the D'deridex fires four at a time... along with the cannon fire, and beam arrays... so are you trying to tell me it has 16 weapon placements? because that is what it would have to have to use all the weapons it does... maybe more. So really, your arguements are not valid. It IS a cheat ship, and it IS obvious.
