It is interesting that the ''Enterprise'' made no attempt to launch [[photon torpedo]]s into the mouth of the machine after learning that its internal mechanisms could be damaged that way. If torpedos have the multi-megaton yields often claimed by [[Trekkie]]s, a few torpedos into the machine's mouth should have been sufficient to disable it.

One possible explanation relates to how the machine was able to somehow "deactivate" the antimatter on the ''USS Constellation''. If attacks from the machine similarly affected the ''USS Enterprise'', the torpedo warheads might have been rendered useless. The episode provides no confirmation of this hypothesis, however.
