If there's something here I'm not aware of...I'd like to know
You know, on the UI... that thing where it shows the hull %, faction, level, shield facings, etc. of the target... there's this convenient little arrow that points to the shield facing you are, well, facing.

Mind pointing me to the ass end of a sphere/cube/transformer/generator/gateway without doing any damage to get your bearings?
Thanks, that'll be greeeaaattt....
Not ever structure needs to have a "rear." Why would you expect the Borg to engineer a Cube or Sphere to have an ass you could shoot at? Get over the "My new Raider functionality" needs to be able to do everything my other ship can do and just adapt. Some things you'll be able to attack from the "rear," some you wont be.
Frankly I see no point in Cryptic spending any time on coding that differentiates the rear quad of any ship or structure that doesn't specifically have a bow. Just because an object has a shield facing opposite the face you assume to be the "front" doesn't mean it has a rear facing. Might just be facings based on degrees (0, 90, 180, 270) hence no traditional "back" but just 4 equal quadrants.
Really? You cant tell when you're looking at the ass of a ship? Come on! Really.
Some situations are actually quite dark, and when almost 10k away from say an escort or other smaller ship which is hard to pick out it's hull shape from background, or one you are not familiar with seeing, can be very hard to tell indeed. Especially if not everyone has an ultra high screen resolution. Really, often I'm barely seeing the ships I destroy that are of that size pretty much. Just seeing a red targeting box with a dark tiny unidentifiable metallic mass in the center of it.
Any case though, the existing arrow on ship status display we have could afford to be larger and be glowing or some contrasting color cause it's hard to quickly see in a heated battle for sure.
