Odyssey Aft Beam Array origin
 
Sometimes my aft beam arrays fire from the end of the nacelles instead of the ship body. Not sure if that's how its programmed, but it looks stupid. They should fire from the hull, not the end of the nacelles. :(

The USS Enterprise E fired from the nacelles.

I wondered about that myself. I was thinking that the nacelles are about the dumbest place to but a weapon array. Why would someone put weapons directly onto the engines? (:rolleyes:) The hull is where they should be placed.

The problem with placing aft arrays directly on the hull, is you limit the firing arc available to them. Think upper hull array trying to fire thru a warp nacelle.

So they can draw power directly from said engines? Because it provides a wider firing arc? Because maybe they can design it safely enough that there's no significant drawbacks?

Just because imaginary 24th century technology seems unintuitive to you doesn't mean it's a mistake or oversight.
