Consistent with Tholian weapons.

Unless we get some new armor that resists proton damage, I fear that I'll get my ship thoroughly ruined by the Tholians. Of course anyone regularly using the subspace field modulator thinking it's useful in all situations will be in for a nasty surprise.

Will neutronium cut the mustard against proton weapons? I sure hope we'll be given alternatives.

Speaking of alternatives, will we be getting a seventh weapon type? Proton beam arrays and dual heavy cannons please!

A galaxy (any model) will wipe the tholians from the sky

But Escorts are after all cheap , cheerful and utterly expendable

Hijacking threads to push your own agenda is lame. Grow up, old man.

I faced them on Tribble, they seemed to be firing tetryon beams, from the looks of them.

Maybe their "disruption torpedoes" are proton, I dunno?

If you remember, the Synchronic Proton Distortion Rifle fires a blue energy beam. The Tholians very well could be using proton beams if they're blue like tetryon.

I was about to retort by saying I didn't notice any abnormal damage from them. But, I don't run a specific energy resist apart from a plasma one from my MACO shield. So they could be using proton beams and the general energy resists have already been programmed to cover them.
