The torpedos count the same way missles do. if you have the 150 missle rack ull see the count is only 146 because 4 are locked and loaded. same with the torpedo. 1 is in the chamber 3 standby. However i have had that same issue with missles working after torpedos are out.

bonus quest comes up complete which makes no sense since bonus quests only give xp.. and at lvl 50 when you get proton torpedos you do not gain more xp...
They can be destroyed by blasters and missiles. LOTS of blasters and missiles. I always try to take out the bridge just for fun. But taking out the comm array on the space stations still crashes the game. (Until 1.0.2 apparently)

My main problem with proton torpedoes is that you can't fire regular missiles at shielded targets until you've exhausted your proton torpedo inventory.

Why would I waste a proton torpedo on a capital ship shield generator when I could blow it up with 3 regular missiles?

Yes you can. Holding down right mouse button cause the proton torpedo to lock on, but simply clicking right mouse button will still fire your missiles.

simply clicking the right mouse button for me if I have remaining proton torpedoes just causes the lockon animation to start briefly and then stop. No missiles are fired.

This may have changed in the last week or so, as I have just put them in my bank after using them the first day.
