Well we already have dino's running around with lasers, so my thought was we have Beam Arrays, and Beam Banks. We have shield arrays, and...wait where are the Shield Banks???? Any ideas?

A bank is an arrangement of objects in a line or in tiers. the dual beam bank you refereed to is a group of arrays. If there were a shield bank it would imply a secondary shield facing. that mechanic would make no sense because in the end you are just increasing shield capacity.

P.s. forums are not instant.

Dual Beam Banks (and Phaser Banks in general) are a pair of single phaser emitters that are fired in tandem, with each emitter having a fairly narrow firing arc.

Phaser Arrays are a collection of several phaser emitters, linked into a single strip, that allowed Federation vessels to cover a much wider field-of-fire with a single weapon system (the 2 type 10 arrays mounted on the Galaxy-class Starship's saucer section covered nearly the same field-of-fire as 8 of the Constitution's Phaser Banks).

The same theory holds for shield emitters, with shield arrays allowing for greater coverage with less emitters than a (theoretical) shield bank.



tl;dr - Shield banks would make no sense.
