Quantums also move faster than photons, i've tested it out. That leaves your enemy with less time to move to a different shield facing.

There'll also be a mission that rewards you a Quantum Torpedo Launcer.
Thanx a lot. Doing the exploration missions in Hromi 2-3 times is fine for me.

Photons may look as good dmg but your missing the skills for quantums to be used to there full effect

1)Yes it because of high end damage + high yield it gives out awesome impact

Correct timing is the most important thing , I mainintain a distance of 7to 9 km , then starttachyon beam and fire of quantam torps with high yield
Most of the time tachyon beam takes of their shield for a few secs and during that time when the quantam turps hit it absolutely fun to see the damage spike.


2) Also I like the animation over photon torps

3) Stupid reason but Quantam sounds more cool than photon .

There are 2 major reasons to use Quantums-

1. They move faster, so its easier to hit the target when the shields are down vs getting a sliver of shield facing back to basically nullify the damage. This also makes it easier to fight at longer range.

2. They move faster, so when you are in a group or in a fleet action they will actually hit the target before its dead.

well this has been an interesting topic.

I'm using a Mark3 in the back of my ship and using a Plasma Torp in the front.
Tho i am thinking of replacing the Plasma torp because it doesn't seem be a 50-50 chance for the heavy plasma to do any damage at all.
Only time i see it do massive damage(as in 7k) is when it has traveled a fair distance and most times when it does go it seems to just hang there.

Anyone really like the Plasma torp?

I got my first Quantums as a reward drop for the fleet action against the Gorn. I was Lt. Commander Grade 1 at the time.

I had my cruiser in Beta as Fore Photon, aft Quantum as Quantum fore and aft shared cooldown while with photon I could be firing them every 3-4 seconds

also running from a ship and dumping quantums onto weakened for shields wasa good way to kill Klingons

I recieved my First Quantum Mark II Lancher in Starbase 24 fleet action, so i must have performed admirably that time. I was a Lieutenant Grade 4
