On Targets that have the option to be destroyed by torpedoes (Capital Ship Command, Station Tower) you will see a different reticule pop up you have to hold that down until you see if go from red to tan then release the missile button you will see the purple trail from the torpedo followed by the destruction of the thing it was aimed at.

So now the question is, how do you NOT fire photon torpedoes at those targets? On Clouds of Vondoru, I one shot the first three shield generators with torpedoes, then I can't fire normal missiles at the fourth.

I think you are in the wrong forums. If you are looking to fire photon torpedoes, then you should visit Star Trek Online forums.

However, if you are referring to PROTON torpedoes, then I guess you are in the right place.

It's literally impossible to complete Clouds of Vondoru with Proton Torpedos equipped.

You manually aim and don't hold the right mouse button. By just clicking the right button you can free fire missiles. Also, eventhough the counter says 3 you actually have 4 torpedoes, one is in the chamber. Was struggling with the same thing for a long time untill I realized that.

Proton Torpedoes are easily the worst idea and implementation in space combat minigame. Once proton torpedoes are depleted it's impossible to lock onto ship and station components with regular missiles. They need to make firing them separate from regular missiles.

As it stands right now, equipping them them on your ship makes completing missions harder than not using them at all. I bought them, tried them, then immediately removed them.

But photon torpedos are SO much more powerful! I mean come on, they're anti-matter warheads!

Yeah, proton torpedoes are good but they should not be on the same key as missiles. You should be able to choose since in certain situations i'd rather spam missiles then hold down the key and wait for proton torpedo.

For that reason it's also got a spot in my cargo bay ;p
