Also in the same episode...

"Torpedo away. Direct hit, sir. No effect."
"Target absorbed the full energy of our torpedo."
"Absorbed it? There must be damage to your instruments."
"They're in good working order, Captain."
"But what could have absorbed that much energy and survived?"

They're stunned that a target absorbed one torpedo, when their own ship can absorb hundreds? Really? TOS can be ridiculous. --Ted C 22:18, 25 February 2015 (EST)

  • Considering the target hit was smaller then the torpedo, being stunned that it did nothing does make a bit of sense. --Isolder74 13:47, 26 February 2015 (EST)
    • If that very same target had not hit them with an order of magnitude more firepower, I might be inclined to believe that, but they act surprised that anything could have taken that hit, when their own ship could take 400 similar hits without losing shields. The writing is just messed up in this episode. Was anyone proof-reading the script? --Ted C 00:00, 27 February 2015 (EST)
