  • Early Earth Starfleet munition developed alongside Poseidon-class vessels
    • Presumptive from "Triton-class" designation per "Minefield"
  • Nuclear-based munition (TOS: "Balance of Terror"; SCE Short Story: "Foundations, Book Two")
    • Latter citation given per capability of generating EMP
  • Largely obsoleted by photon torpedo, but still in use by Starfleet by c.2165 (SCE Short Story: "Foundations, Book Two")
    • Fixed yield per missile, unlike later munition (ENT: "The Expanse")
    • Low viability against deflectors; easily deflected by shields, with little capability of inflicting damage against shielded opponents (ENT: "Fight or Flight")
