Re: Name your imponderables for Star Trek

Here is another imponderable for me: torpedoes have their own propulsion and guidance systems. So what, exactly, is so difficult about pushing one set to passive out of a cloaked ship, then moving away and activating it? I mean, I understand that the BoP from ST VI was supposed to be special because it could fire torpedoes out while cloaked, but to me, that just seems like a bad idea - the torp should show up on sensors as soon as it's out of the cloak. You'd want to MOVE AWAY first before it shows up on sensors.
