A note about weapon hardpoints: WEAPONS DO NOT FIRE OUT OF NACELLES
 
Please get rid of that thing that makes weapons originate from bussard collectors and nacelles in general, unless its a visible add-on like with the zephyr nacelles.


I'm sick of seeing dual beams originate from the nacelles of my prometheus.


What is up with you people?



And why do dual beams originate from like the sides of the hull on saucers? Theres no reason to.

Somehow i agree to this. No series, no canon has show phaser fire coming from the nacelles or bussard collectors.

The closest was the defiant and voyager, bit in each case, the phaser cannons/strips were mounted outside the nacelle itself, only on support struts, not the actual nacelles

Is everyone forgetting the nacelle phasers in BOBW?

This is important compared to having no appreciable Klingon content?

Y'all realize the Klingon faction is in a death spiral, right?

They're not nacelle phasers, they're on the pylons beneath the nacelles, the large phaser arrays. We're talking about ones firiing straight out of the bussard collectors or the warp grills.

I may be wrong but dont Torpedoes sometimes fire out of the saucer of the Constitiution and Galaxy?



Oh and on the subject o the defiant....its not even supposed to be abel to fire a beam, its circuits would overload or something, thats why it had burst fire in the show.

COnstitution classics fire torpedoes from the saucer. Galaxy saucers have an "emergency launcher" above their shuttlebay that faces aft

The defiant has beam phasers on it's dorsal and ventral, it used them many times in the mirror universe and during the final battle of the dominon war, dont know where you got that overloading circuits thing from

from that one episode where they modify the deflector to fire particle burst akin to phaser in order to rid themselves of that one jem hadar fighter that has pwned them hard. But using that trick overloaded a lot of things.

Because it was a deflector and not a phaser.;)
