Re: Court Martial - Ion Pod revisited

If the point for the ion pod is to measure interstellar storms outside of the influence of the shields. Then the best location for it would be on the bottom or aft end of the engineering section. That way when it's ejected, it doesn't pose a risk of hitting the ship. Most importantly the engines. If it's at the bottom of the saucer section then it could possibly hit the navigation deflector.
Unless someone prefers to give that thingy at the bottom of the engineering hull
a different treknological identification, I'd say we are looking straight at the ion pod or a structure of which it is a part of.
