I got my hands on a MK XII Tricobolt launcher. I thought, woohoo look out Borg. THen I actually used it. Yes, it does hella damage, but the fire rate is so slow it negates the benefits. And they are almost useless if the enemies shields are still up. They take forever to reload, they are slow enough that even a dimwitted Borg could shoot them down, and they just don't do enough damage to be worth it. Don't use tricobolt torpedoes. You will die between the time you fire the first and you fire the second. And you need to be point blank so they wont get shot down.
