A new advance in Torpedo design, the high yield FLUX Torpedo utilizes a unique discrepancy in warp bubble
theory. As the torpedo approaches the target, special sensors register the distance between the target and
itself. When the distance is less than 500 meters, a small warp generator onboard the torpedo is activated,
creating a warp bubble around the torpedo of 5 meters radius.
As the field is formed, the anti-matter interlocks in the explosive section of the casing are released,
allowing the anti-matter and matter reactants to mix, detonating the torpedo on impact.
Before the torpedo detonates however, the warp generator begins to alter the warp bubble radically,
causing the bubble to 'flux' - expanding and contracting rapidly before impact.
As the torpedo detonates from the mixed anti-matter and matter reaction,
the resultant shock wave of force is amplified by resonating with the fluxed warp bubble to create a more
explosive force than the usual photon torpedoes.
The force generated is 0.06 x10 times greater than the standard photon torpedo detonation,
but requires only a slight modification of the internal casing.
