Thermokinetic explosion

A thermokinetic explosion destroy's Enterprise's port-forward quarter

A thermokinetic explosion is an energy discharge produced by weapons such as tricobalt explosives.

The Romulan mines encountered in 2152 by the crew of Enterprise NX-01 surrounding a planet annexed by the Romulan Star Empire produced thermokinetic explosions with the yield of approximately one-quarter of a kiloton. Just one of these explosions detonated in contact with the hull when it wasn't polarized was sufficient to destroy a large portion of the ship's port-forward quarter. An explosion of this size was not dangerous at a distance of 20 to 25 meters when holding a hull plate reinforced with duratanium alloy against the blast, such as a shuttlepod hatch. (ENT: "Minefield")

Thermokinetic is the term used of a combination of thermodynamic and kinetic. [1]
