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.
As the brilliant philosopher once said... Everybody, have fun tonight. Everybody, Wang Chung tonight.
