Thanks for the correction. Interestingly, since that was Dorothy C. Fontana I would think that she knew what she was doing when numbering photon torpedoes and not tubes.

John M. Lucas started the numbering in "The Changeling", it would be interesting to see if we could learn what's the true story behind all this based on original production memos.

She probably didn't think that people would misunderstand that they were referring to tubes. As Workbee pointed out, using even numbers is the dead giveaway.
