I complained about this a while ago in the bugs forum but it was never addressed.

When you are close by to a weapon being launched like a high yield plasma torp, you get hit with it's effect immediately. If you destroy that weapon you are still hounded by the plasma fire.

I suspect that this occurs on other plasma weapons that miss you, as I'm often burning alive without taking any real shield damage.

It is easily testable on the Undine ships, let them fire a high yield torp from 7k and shoot it down.. nothing, at <2km you get the fire before it hits, if you shoot it down you are still on fire. This pretty much invalidates consoles like point defense.
