I actually had the logs going today. Me in a Vesta, 32.5k hull. Gobbled a "torpedo" hull hit that spend 6k punching a slightly downed shield and still had enough oomph to slap 27.8k hull off my ship. Doing the math right after that hit indicated that said torpedo ate off 93.something% from full health.

And this wasn't a HY (aka big, slow, and shoot-downable), but a "normal" torp/bolt that does the high-speed traversal...

They said that borg torps won't crit anymore, but they still have a high-ish damage range. Saying a baseline 40k, magnified by the spread's 1.15 modifier into a 46k hit. Escorts don't have all that much more hull than sciences, so I can see one of these killing a full-strength escort as a "one hit kill", and plasma spreads are still fast-enough travelling that you'd have to BFI as soon as you see the effect start, nevermind ascertaining if the spread even picked you out of the group to be defended against - and spread cools quicker than BFI...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
