When a civilian ship, shuttle, or other vessel without torpedoes suffers a casualty, it seems to be standard practice to use the transporter to do the job (optionally destroying the body in the process so there aren't desiccated corpses floating in deep space for all eternity...).

Plonking this here (with a bit of tweaking) until it can have a specific example added.
