# 1 Fleet Har'peng Torpedo
03-20-2014, 06:50 PM
Warriors of the Empire,

Many barrels of bloodwine ago, before the age of fleets and 10 console ships.....there existed a torpedo. This torpedo saw use at the hands of many noble Klingon warriors and even our greatest enemies the Federation saw its might. The Borg above Starbase 82 cowered in fear of the pink torpedo of death and its dangerous radiation after-effect. I hereby purpose that this mighty servant of the Empire be upgraded to Fleet status for the Klingon Defense Forces only. With this torpedo, our enemies will once again fear the might of the Har'peng torpedo...the weapon that destroyed the Doomsday Machine. Let this noble servant join us in battle once again!

[ End Speech]

When I first started STO, the Har'Peng was widely considered to be one of the best weapons in the game and one of the funnest. These days it is extremely rare to see this weapon used at all in the game and I suggest a Fleet version or at least a MKXII version for the KDF. Let the Federation/Federation Romulans keep the ability to get the MK11 version, but since the KDF (B'Vat) developed it they alone should get the higher version. All variants would include a Rapid Reload modifier to take away one of the greatest issues with the torpedo, its reload time.

Suggested Variants:
Fleet Har'peng [ACC][DMG]X2[Reload] (Or whatever the rapid reload modifier is)
Fleet Har'peng [ACC][DMG][REL][CrtH]
Fleet Har'Peng [ACC][DMG][REL][CrtD]
Fleet Har'Peng [DMG]X3[REL]

Just my thoughts .

I definitely support this. I used this torp a lot when I was leveling my toon, and a fleet version would serve as a much welcome gift. However, I wouldn't be able to use it we'll on my ship because I have the defiant, which has too many boffs stations to do cannons and not have a buff able torpedo. Still, it would be nice for when I get to VA on my alt and start using the Jem'Hadar carrier

Torpedo abilitys don't affect the harg'peng so I don't understand your problem.


I would suggest instead of simply adding new modifiers (as a mk XII is available to the kdf through doff missions.), we add a mini harg'peng to the standard available torpedos.

Then we can have a torpedo with similiar effects but useable with torpedo powers, perhaps with high yeild creating a similar effect to the current version.
Actualy reading things pefore posting will make you look smarter than yelling loudly. Reading comprehension is aparently a lost art.

are you sure that doff mission is still avaible? I have been looking for it for months on multiple toons. only way I can get it now is to craft it. and then its bound to the crafter even.

Mk XI is still available from doffing. Never heard of mk XII. Plus, mk XI is the highest mark of items available via episode replay (excluding solanae set).

An interesting thing happened: They nerfed it to death, and now it's basically worthless. A Fleet version won't change this. The Sixpenga is gone now.

I would love a KDF only version of this, perhaps it could even come on a c-store ship as the Fed have that wide angle quantum. It would even the playing field and give us warriors some equal footing provided it isn't nerfed. We haven't asked for the Fed torpedo to be nerfed and so a KDF Har'peng torpedo should not be nerfed either.

Keep it with it's current arc, make it equivalent with a MKXII and bring it back to pre-nerf status, the slow reload time would be fine as we don't want a tactical advantage over the Federation, oh I'd hate to see the whine threads if it was. Save us from that torment. lol

I can confirm this. I'm still able to find the Doff mision for the torpedo ocassionaly, but it's just very random. I got a couple from the Doff mission a week ago.
Also, just like notoryczny, I've never heard about Mk XII, I think Mk XI is as far as it goes currently.
