In history we see ships that have cannons along both sides of the hull. Hence the idea of a Broadside attack. It was a way to wage battle. In today's age, warships have the ability to rotate the cannons from a forward to a side firing position. Even from a rear to side position. So why is it in the future we have digressed to a "you can only have cannons face forward"? Does it make sense that we as a potential space exploring race would diminish our ability to wage battle when the need arises? I personally feel that cannons should be awarded the same firing arc as beam arrays. Bring on the Broadside! Damn the torpedo's full speed ahead!
