USS Voyager - photon torpedo countdown
Will Voyager run out of photon torpedoes soon ?
In "The Cloud" it was established they had "a full complement of 38
photon torpedoes", but also that they had "no means to replace them".
- The Cloud
- 1 fired at cloud-creature
1 down, 37 to go
- 6 fired at the missile
- Note also that they first talke about getting the quantum-torpedoes
from Dreadnaught and adapt them to Voyager !!
- 3 torpedoes fired at Kazon
- More than 3 fired
- Basics I
- At least 3 (+ "patern Sierra" if they got around to it; the order was
given, but we don't see the result).
- False Profits
- 3 photon bursts (are these torpedoes ?)
- Future's End II
- 1 torpedo fired at time-ship
- Scorpion II
- 13 torpedoes modified as biological warheads
+ 1 high yield warhead (is that a different type of torpedo ?)
- On the other hand, this episode states that Voyager has 32
torpedoes, which is in clear conflict with "The Cloud" (38),
combined with the torpedoes we have seen in use (> 17)
So actually, there is no point in continuing this countdown;
either the crew managed to make new photon torpedoes, or the
producers don't care about consistency.
- Year of Hell I
- Day 32: 11 torpedoes left, 4 used in next attack
But: alternate reality, so it doesn't count.
- The Omega Directive
- One torpedo modified and fired.
- 1 photon torpedo used as "warp flare", 10 (or more) fired at the
Malon freighter, 3 to collapse the entrance to the vortex
- In the Flesh
- 19 (normal) torrpedoes and 10 class-3 torpedoes were modified with
nanoprobes, so this sets a minimum on the number that was still
- This contradicts the count in Scorpion II
- Dark Frontier
- So many torpedoes were fired that is is hard to count. And what is the
point, it is now very obvious that the count isn't consistent any more.
Note: Was it ever mentioned whether the tri-cobalt devices fired at the array
were the only ones ? What are tri-cobalt devices anyway ? They were never
mentioned on other advanced ships, as the Defiant or Enterprise-E, so it must
be something experimental.
