Re: Torpedoes (XII spoilers)

Spoilers (big, big ones):






No, he didn't appear to know that the torpedoes weren't what he said they were.

Remember he wanted Enterprise to park in the Neutral Zone and hit the target from there with the implication that the origin of the weapons wouldn't be discovered, or they wouldn't be an overt "Federation missiles are raining down on us" like a starship in system firing conventional weapons would do (which gives Kirk and all the desire to do it). He didn't seem to want to start a war just yet, rather build tensions up so as Starfleet could be made more and more militarized and capable.
