Discovery Torpedo?

What do you think is the best torpedo to use on the Crossfield-class Science Vanguard ship to properly emulate the Discovery's torpedos from the TV show?

    There's the prototype photon from the AoD tutorial which is spot on. The AoY photons you can grab at K-13 are pretty close if you don't have access to those.

    Edit: I tell a lie: You can get uncommon rarity Disco torps from "Secrets" in the Age of Discovery mission arc, not the tutorial. I've got a couple of unbound Mk II Uncommons in the bank from there, message me your @ if you want them.

    Prototype Photon from the Tutorial and/or Kelvin are the ones I use...

    I want a green version of these for the Klingons,... like in the show.

    There are green photons in the 8472 Rep, either the rep project one (Heavy Bio-Molecular) or more generic store versions in the rep store. I'm not sure how the sound effects for Klingon torpedoes are in Disco, but these 8472 torps probably don't sound like them.

    Lukari rep Photon torpedos are green as well.

    Nausicaan set torpedo would do as well for the klinks, HY looks a lot like that big one the Sarcophagus knocks a hole in the Shenzou with (and the set's Disruptor damage bonus is pretty nice) .

    The Discovery torps (at least in the series) look like large ball of electricity/lightning with a green color, while I don't think there's any torp that are the exact match there's plenty of green torps using the classic photon torp shape and sounds.

    My Disco toon kept her prototype one and is using it. It upgraded from green to epic before it hit Mk X. While she doesn't have any Disco ships save the Walker she's been using since appearing in the STO universe, she's still keeping it.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Mine got stuck on Rare, now I'm waiting to upgrade it any more until I have an Ultimate Upgrade.

    Can't blame you there. I think I got lucky myself.

    Thank you all I redid the mission for the torpedo. I appreciate the help and offers.

    The new C Store ships come with the blue ones, sadly also the Kling ships

    Just know that the Kelvin Photon is the fastest in the game with a 4.5 second recharge time.

    I love the Kelvin torpedo.
  • rickvic#6033 rickvic Member Posts: 99 Arc User
    Strange thing is, it seems to be unpossible to upgrade the torpedoes which come with the disco ship pack. they have no upgrade option

    with all the nice rework going into ship skins like the ecx, mir and cent (thank you very much, i love it) i would be really happy if the good old photon torpedoes get and visual upgrade and better hit effect to

    Stock gear, the stuff on the ship when you get it, has never been upgradable.

    Ok, then how do i get 2 upgradeable for my main fed toon ?
  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 47,488 Arc User
    You can get another one by making a throwaway Discovery character and run them through the tutorial.

    I was able to retrieve one from a mission replay, though I do not recall which mission. One of the first 2 released missions, I think, not including the Disco tutorial.
  • warpangelwarpangel Member Posts: 8,335 Arc User
    It comes from "Secrets," the first mission in the Age of Discovery arc, but only on replays. The first run gives just generic vendor trash.
  • theboxisredtheboxisred Member Posts: 243 Arc User
    Unless I'm mistaken there is nothing special about this torpedo other than its visual effect, thus making it vendor trash as well. Or am I missing something? I ask because I've noticed that some things that I think should have a baked in ability do not list anything in the description, like the Phaser Stun Bolt Pistol reads like a standard phaser pistol.
  • warpangelwarpangel Member Posts: 8,335 Arc User
    The visual effect is enough.
  • rickvic#6033 rickvic Member Posts: 99 Arc User
    It has the sound effect of the series and the new explosion effect of the disco phasers, it looks also a little bit different than the TOS torpedo. Thanks for the tips, got 2 now

    You'd be surprised the lengths people go to for Space Barbie visual accuracy with theme builds. Also... its fun.

    While TOS Torpedos are passable for a Discovery era theme build, people want the actual look and sound for maximum immersion.

    Sorry, I go for the Kelvin. Shorter cooldown is more important than a sound I don't hear anyway (sound muted) and colors that get lost in a visual cavalcade that we know as space combat.

    People keep saying this, I have never seen it in game. I certainly have no problem seeing what is going on.

    Oh, I'm all in on the Space Barbie thing. I just got it into my head that there was more to it somehow.
