I think the beam arrays we slot in our ships paper doll reflect it's firepower rather than the ammount of physiclal weaponry, but the way they're represented graphicly on your ship in 3D changes depending on where you're firing with some ships. The Excelsior certainly fires from more points than I have weapons slots, and I was pleasantly suprised to notice they'd actually put the beam array pointson the saucer where the phaser banks really are "in real life".
It's a similar thing with DHCs, I've got three on my BoP, but they all fire from the "two" DHCs on the wingtips, although I'd get some DCs if they weren't useless so I could use the inboard ones too.
