Quantum Torpedoes
Quantum torpedoes are Starfleet's replacement for the standard photon torpedo. The quantum torpedo was designed to deliver a yield more then twice that of a photon torpedo, to allow starships to engage stronger opponents.

Quantum torpedoes work on the zero point energy theory. In zero point energy a eleven-dimensional space-time membrane is created, similar to a super-string. The membrane is then twisted into the topology of a Genus 1, resulting in a creation of a new particle. Creating many particles liberates large amounts of energy which is used as the torpedo weapon. Quantum torpedoes operate on the a similar principal as the big bang, on a much smaller scale, where matter and energy is created.

The quantum torpedo is powered by an up-rated photon torpedo warhead that produces a 21.8 isotone's yield, this energy is then channelled into the zero point field emitter. The membrane is created, through a hole cut by a nanometer Phaser, in a tear drop shaped rodiniumditellenite crystal with neutronium and dilithium plating. 52.3 isotones of energy is released when the chambers wall fail
