Where in the series is it said there isn't an energy beam emitter mounted on the captain's yacht?

The shot in Darmok is one of the more notorious bloopers in TNG. CBS-D fixed the energy beam shot in the pilot. I'm sure they'll redo the one in Darmok too.
The energy beam from the pilot was just as ridiculous a "fix" as the one from "Darmok" would be. Sorry, I really don't see why those things must be "corrected". I mean, this is a fucking fictional spaceship. The energy/phaser beam can come from wherever it wants.

Garak: »My dear doctor, they're all true.«
Bashir: »Even the lies?«
Garak: »Especially the lies.«
