i don't go reaching for canon justification much anymore, but this is something as basic as torpedoes. its a defining start trek feature that separates the game from being a start trek game, to generic space shooter. not only would it look more canon, it would just make torps as good as energy weapons, or at least the opportunity cost for not using at least 1 torp would be higher then using no torps.

i think there should be a torp mod called arc, that would bump it from 135 to 180. 135 is just squarely between 90 and 180.
