It's not so much the actual FX that bothers me for cannons (and turrets especially), it's how they are fired. Specifically by that, I mean how they seem to emanate from these rather nonsensical points across the starship itself.
For any non-Starfleet ship, it's not too bad. Most are known to be bristling with weapons all over, sometimes hidden from view. But for Starfleet ships, whose main armaments have historically mostly been beam-based weapons, it's somewhat jarring.
Personally, I've always felt it'd be much neater looking if the cannon shots actually emanated from the phaser strips on Starfleet ships, but that may be just me.
Formerly GT-01. Runnin' a small lite-RP casual fleet called "The Voyagers"! Message me in-game at either Salen@GT01 or Xavok@GT01 if yer interested.
Here's my neat Idea's Thread.
