Because then if you come in from the front blasting with phaser it should weaken shields enough to drop torpedoes as you pass. Would that work?
Doing that to a moving target that knows what to expect would be difficult. If you do want to try something like that, I'd recommend against going straight and trying to maintain a broadside more to the rear of your vessel. That'll give you more time to use your rear launchers when you wish to try. It'd probably be better to fit the launcher to front though. Even if it means having a ship blowing up in your face, it'd be more intuitive than trying to use the rear launcher while pulling away.
