And all fixed wing aircraft during that era and after had folding wings so they could be stored more easily
No they didn't. Just the carrier-based aircraft.

The Tor'Khat has an obvious pivot-point. It's there. It's undeniable. There's even a horizontal "plate" on the ventral flank that one would presume would be the "stop" for the wing's travel.

That's like saying the Nova and Defiant don't have landing gear doors, even tho they're on both the canon MSDs and studio renders. Yet people still argue the Intrepid's the only Federation ship that can land..

This is not Star Trek Armada...

If we are referring to the Tor'Kaht, then it's probably just cosmetic. If we are talking about the Corsair, I will not answer that since I already did.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

What the heck are you talking about?
There was no Tor'kaht in Star Trek Armada 2.
Here's a list of all the Klingon ships in Armada 2:

NuQ'DuJ-class
Chava'kal-class
Koloth-class
B'rel-class
Chuq'Beh-class
SuQ'Jagh-class
Vor'cha-class
Fek'lhr-class
Qeh'ral-class
Negh'Var-class
Jach'Eng-class

where is a Tor'kaht in that list?

Kirk would say, "Why do starships need wings?"
Chingachgook told me, Don't try to understand them; and don't try to make them understand you. For they are a breed apart and make no sense.

Well the F8 could.

I've read another story (can't find it right now) that mentions a F8 pilot (might have been French) who took off with his wings folded and then jinked causing them to fold down as a (unauthorized) stunt at an air show.

Which is why Kirk is the Captain and not the Chief Engineer...

Ok hereticknight, you are all knowing, im sorry i brought it up i didnt realize that you have the final say on this. so cryptic you heard him no more moving parts on any ship.
its the bane of his existence.

ohh and the corsair thing, that was the most inappropriate comparison. they are nothing alike, apples to oranges. make a comparison that has a hinge that doesnt move, ever!
