Photonic torpedoes are missile weapons used on Earth starships in the 22nd century. They are essentially low-performance photon torpedoes[1]. Like their descendants, they have variable explosive yield. According to Malcolm Reed, a maximum-yield photonic torpedo can "put a 3-kilometer crater into an asteroid,"[2] suggesting a high yield anywhere between 1 megaton and over 100 megatons, depending on asteroid composition.
