You know, there's no reason to think the original Carol didn't start out the same way.

I mean think of "Genesis" as an allegory. She invents some terrible weapon that unleashes total destruction of life. She regrets what she's done, and then devotes the rest of her career to using that technology to create life.

I question whether or not it's a torpedo. In the 2009 ST, we see them loading what are presumably photon torpedoes in a launcher with their hands. I always thought those seemed small, compared with the "prime universe" ones.
Exactly. I tossed the idea of it being a torpedo out of hand because of the scenes from ST09, unless this is some kind of uber torpedo,
Might be seeing as Carol Marcus is supposed to be some kind of weapons specialist this time around.
I had the same thought. Perhaps Enterprise will be testing some form of new torpedo and this is the reason why Marcus is onboard.

And the reason why Harrison might let himself be captured?

Nah, he's just tryiing to fit in with all the cool bad guys. Like the Joker in The Dark Knight, Loki in The Avengers, Silva in Skyfall. Having a complex masterplan which requires allowing the good guys to capture you is what all the cool villains are doing these days.

The best way to destroy the Federation is to make the Klingons think they are being attacked.
If it is a biological weapon or terraformer device, Harrison could steal it and throw it in Qo'noS or Praxis using April´s ship.

But how would that benefit Mudd's World and its android populace?

In that bad robot international trailer a room with multiple levels explodes and people are sucked into space at warp could this be that set seeing as they're looking up maybe talking to someone on a level above perhaps this is a torpedo that explodes in the ship causing the hull breach?

Re: New photo released: Probe, torpedo, or...

im going to go with torpedo.

We know from enterprise that in earlier generations they would hand load torpedo's into a loading gully then the machines would finish loading it into the tube. but the photon torpedo's where loaded into a different tube fully by machines.

No reason to think its no different here.
