In The Motion Picture we see the Klingon torpedo tube "open up" and charge before firing it's initial salvo. We see something similar in TWOK when the Enterprise fires on Reliant. The torpedo seems to hang in the tube before going to "critical mass" and firing off. Anyone care to speculate as to why the torpedoes do this or what the productions thinking was behind it? It's always perked my curiosity because it's very "striking" dramatically. It makes the K'tingas look particularly menacing, and beastly.
