15 photon torpedoes doesn't make sense unless you go with the hypothetical DITL torp magazines that have 640 torpedoes in them. And even then, you'd need to radically alter the pod geometry to get more than 2560 torps in there (half of the article's example of a reasonable number for an Intrepid class ship).
