Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

I would think that torpedoes have two "modes." One is a fully guided mode, which is used when the tactical situation is not complicated, and the tactical officer can devote more attention to a single weapon, and a partially guided mode, where the torpedo can manouver on it's own, but isn't as accurate as the fully guided mode. I don't think there can be any question about torpedoes being guided though. When you're talking the speeds and manouverabilities of starships we've seen in star trek, in order to hit a target at all a torpedo would have to be guided.
