Re: The Doomsday Machine - why no photon torpodoes?

In the novelization by James Blish, phasers were fired into the "maw" only to have the beams "bounce around" inside until their energy was expended.

I know; I know, "not canon!" But it's the closest thing we have to an answer. Maybe such a sequence was intended but for one reason or another (script running over time, not enough money or time to do the added effects) the idea was "cut".


Tempt the Hand of Fate and it'll give you the "finger"!
