The Romulans stopped using plasma torpedoes on their starships after a technology exchange with the Klingons.  In the 24th century, Romulan ships carry [[disruptor]]s and [[photon torpedo|photon torpedoes]].  The range limitations and high energy consumption of plasma torpedoes may have lead to their being replaced.

Plasma torpedoes continued to be used to protect ground installations and on [[orbital defense platform]]s. It is unknown if these weapons are identical to the TOS-era torpedo or a derivative design.
