Photon warhead label

A photon warhead warning label

For the VOY episode of the same name, please see "Warhead".

A warhead was the explosive on a projectile weapon. The word was also used as a euphemism for the entire weapon. In most situations the warhead was attached to a device called a fuse, which detonated the weapon at an advantageous time.

Many different warheads were used throughout the history of the galaxy. Examples include:


In 2372, Benjamin Sisko had Miles O'Brien equip the USS Defiant's atmospheric probes with warheads from the quantum torpedoes to be used against two Jem'Hadar fighters. (DS9: "Starship Down")

In 2375, a warhead of unknown origin, which was a series 5 long-range tactical armor unit and was equipped with an artificial intelligence, was found on a planet in the Delta Quadrant. (VOY: "Warhead")
