It always looked weird situated on its side- at least in "Empok Nor" and "The Magnificent Ferengi".
Which was a silly conceit, since there's no up or down in space. It wasn't "on its side," it's just that they chose to tilt the camera relative to it as a visual shorthand to convey "damaged and listing" to our gravity-conditioned eyes.
I always liked how Kronos One flies down into camera view from the top left of the screen, kinda levels off, and then flies back upwards again to finally come along side the Enterprise.

Too much bloodwine maybe?
