Multiple realities
(covers information from several alternate timelines)
EnterpriseNX01TorpedoLaunch
The automated bay of the Enterprise NX-01 loads a torpedo into the tube

A torpedo bay is the area of a starship in which torpedoes are stored, and the torpedo launcher can be accessed by personnel. In the bay, torpedoes are removed from storage and placed into the torpedo tubes immediately prior to launch.

Torpedo bay on USS Enterprise (alternate reality)
Torpedo bay of the alternate USS Enterprise

In the alternate reality, the torpedo bay of the USS Enterprise was operated manually by members of the crew. Two launcher cannons were accessible and six torpedoes could be simultaneously loaded into the torpedo tubes of a cannon. (Star Trek)

The two torpedo launchers on both sides of the bay were called cannons in the script of Star Trek. [1]
Enterprise torpedo bay
The torpedo bay of the refit USS Enterprise

Different ships from the 22nd century to the 23rd century had varying degrees of automation of this process. The retrofitted USS Enterprise and USS Enterprise-A appeared to primarily use manually-loading bays (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country), while the process was more automated a century earlier on Enterprise NX-01. (ENT: "Fight or Flight", "Civilization", "Similitude") Vessels in the 24th century were also equipped with automated torpedo bays. (TNG: "In Theory"; VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

Enterprise-A torpedo bay
The torpedo bay of the USS Enterprise-A

The compact torpedo bay of the refit Constitution-class USS Enterprise-A was located on Deck 13. In 2293, Captain Spock and Doctor Leonard McCoy entered the torpedo bay, where they modified a photon torpedo to track the engine emissions left by General Chang's prototype Klingon Bird-of-Prey. When modifications were complete, they loaded the torpedo manually into its firing tube. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

Although only two distinct forward torpedo tubes are seen on the refit USS Enterprise, bays labeled 3 and 4 were seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
Galaxy class torpedo bay
The torpedo bay of a Galaxy-class starship

Aboard the Galaxy-class USS Enterprise-D, the forward torpedo bay was located on Deck 25. (TNG: "In Theory") In 2368, Captain Jean-Luc Picard gave the winners of the primary school science fair a tour of several parts of the ship, including the torpedo bay. (TNG: "Disaster")

In 2372 of the mirror universe, Terran Resistance Forces engineers preparing for the launch of the ISS Defiant attempted to bring torpedo chambering mechanisms on-line in the aft torpedo bay. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")
