Just sort of lore question, but it's bugging me. Hypersonic (assume that means they travel faster than the speed of sound?) torpedoes can travel 3 squares in a turn. That's much further than the distance between many stars in ST4X. Can this be explained, or is just one of those real-life-physics-don't-apply-here things?
There are many stars with wobbles that could be deemed as moving out of your way if you're trying to thread the needle with a particularly tricky torp shot. Me - I'd work on tech that would trigger the star to go nova - that way you might not shoot through the star, but you'd take out the target (and the whole stellar neighborhood)
