It's just the way the devs made it look.
The pattern that appears when the shield or console is equipped shows a bilateral pattern though, The dish looks quite bilateral as well. It really is just the engines that are out of the norm.
(I was going to say it looked like a more cylindrical horseshoe crab, but w/e :p )
