Shouldn't makeone blind bit of difference, Photon torpedeos aren't fire and forget weapons that only continue to move in the direction they are fired.
funny that torpedo in Star Trek 6 seemed to have no trouble changing course when it locked on to Chang's ship.
To be fair, the poor thing just had major bypass surgery, a lot of that could have been spasms.
The STVI-TUC torpedo was the only thing that to me was deserving of the name. Although looking up the official definition, I now see that a weapon can be called a torpedo yet be neither self-propelled nor self-maneuvering. IMO, you need both to be called a torpedo, though, but I have seen Hunt for Red October too many times.
