    Couple of things: a) Did Voyager use up all the T'phasic Torps battling the Borg?
    b) If not, what did SF/Feds do w/them?

    Well, technically, it wouldn't have mattered too much, since the Borg had already adapted to them :S

    Voyager has the greatest weapons of all time. They are really super. The best.

















    That's my Voyager weapons compliment.

    No problem. As for the assimilation of the armor technology, that doesn't mean the Federation couldn't adapt to it.

    I think that - in the novels at least - the Voyager tech will be returning soon for the TNG relaunch's encounter with the Borg.

    Which brings up an interesting thought-should SF use V'gers tech to go after a weakened Borg (using of those handy-dandy conduits)

    Which happen to be 1 way, ie. you can't travel back through one. And not to mention the hub was destroyed :S

    Did the borg adapt to the torpedos, or the armor? I thought it was the armor they adapted to, ofcourse seven of nine adapted to what are more or less transphasic torpedos in year of hell on her own, so it would have took the entire collective like an hour top's to figure it out.

    ^ The Queen said in the episode:

    I may have assimiliated your pathogen, but I also assimilated your armor technology.

    There were not transphasic torpedoes in Year of Hell, they were Chroniton Torpedoes.

    Yep, that last V'ger torpedo pretty much kicked that Sphere's ass.

    year of hells torpedos as I understand it are the same thing with a different name, torpedos that are out of phase with normal space time, pass through the shields and bingo, isn't that what voys transphasic torpedos done? Seven invented temporal shields or some cr*p and the day was saved.

    The Borg aren't the only other race. Transphasic Torpedoes and the armor technology would greatly shift the balance of power in the alpha quadrant.

    Getting rid of them per the TPD is the only thing that makes sense to me. The scimitar/ Enterprise-E battle wouldn't have lasted all that long if starfleet still had the torps and armor.

    They weren't. The Chroniton torpedoes were based on temporal science and could only pass through shields - not destroy a vessel outright because they were in temporal flux. The transphasic torpedoes overcame the Borg's abilities to adapt and delivered such high concentrations of energy that the Borg were overloaded. They simply exploded.

    Two different things.

    too bad voyager lost the temporal shielding technology, would have helped them plenty from temporal investagations, or that dude that planted the type something temporal bomb. lol

    What I really want to know is how did Voyager not run out of photon torpedoes? I thought I remember them saying that they couldn't build repacements onboard. Those suckers should've been gone by the end of Season 2.

    ^ They did: Janeway tells Chakotay they only had 38 torpedoes aboard and no way to replace them.

    According to Memory Alpha's entry on this topic Voyager fired over 100 torpedoes during the course of the series.
