Re: TWOK Phasers: Visceral... and Rare?

There are 2 valid reasons about not firing torpedoes in that situation.

1 - Not a good idea to fire them at close range when your shields are down!

2 - If the torpedoes hit the reliant and did not bring down her warp drive and ability to fire, then any retaliation from the Reliant would mean destruction of the Enterprise. With the Phasers, Kirk was able to take down the key systems that would not allow the Reliant to hit back.
