# 1 Tactical Cube suicide

Tactical Cube deals 493884 (205507) Kinetic Damage to Tactical Cube with Plasma Torpedo - Heavy III.

Something is wrong, isn't it?
We were firing the cube, it was about 50% when suddenly it exploded. I was impressed, so I checked Combat Logs and found that.

Apparently the Borg assimilated a Romulan ship...

The Romulans have an Iconian virus in their computer systems, and it's messing with heavy plasma torpedo guidance.

In other words, an extreme instance of a VERY known bug that Cryptic attempted to fix on several occasions.

Well, why fix it? It'd make it easier to complete Hive

It also makes it a lot easier to fight any Romulan ship equipped with heavy plasma torpedoes, especially the D'deridex.

And I expect it also causes trouble for Undine ships.

On tribble at the moment all HY torpedos are swinging back to destroy any npc that fired it, this bug is back with a vengeance if its on holodeck, now is the time to stick it to the collective!

Does this happen with the Unimatrix Command Ships in the Red Alerts? That would be something to see!

I have this happen to me actually. What it does, I think, is re-targets the nearest most damaged ship or at least that is what happened to me once but usually it targets like I mentioned the nearest damaged ship I did an alphastrike on a mogai and the torp turned around and hit him when it, the torp, was about 0.2 km from me.

Heavy torpedoes are AoE. If one detonates close to whoever fired it, they get hurt, obviously. What's so strange about that?

And yes, the unimatrix ships can also hurt themselves. As can Romulan ships with heavy plasmas and anything with tricobalts.
