In STO the plasma torpedo moves slowly and is also the second least powerful torpedo in the game but is otherwise the same as every other torpedo.

Ya, I used to play a rommie on dyna until the futility of it sunk in.
The downtime was the counter, but you could kill in one pass if you did it right. Again, ISC was the best of plasma races because they used plasma in concert with other weapons, Roms and Gorn used almost all plasma.

As for STO, all the torps are too slow. I outrun not just plasma and tricos with evasive+ engine, but aslo every other torp. And thats stupid. Weapons (Energy included) should hit tgts faster and stop heat seeking across the map. Just watch the fed scorts out run your shots for long enough to cloak
