Torp skills are worth having if you have the Tactical bridge officer slots available. I dont use any torp skills on any of my ships, because they have limited boff slots and I can get similar return from equipment alone (Breen cluster torp gives a pattern, and the Nadion Detonator wll give a heavy upgrade to non-specials). I am using my slots for extra Tac Team, to keep shields rotating and damage boosted.
