maybe because the current omega torp sucks?

I mean honestly now.. the thing does less damage than a regular plasma torpedo when used in high yield. The only time its of any worth is when firing it on autofire due to its 5-torp charge system.

If the omega was like the unimatrix plasma-bombs then we'd be talking.. but this 'de-spawn' ship effect is just visual crap fluff.
