Re: Dreadnought-Class Production Line (Spoilers?)

Supposedly, the big bad cannon swung down from there. And the order that Marcus gave to get the cannon lowered was "aft torpedoes", which basically only makes sense if he was ordering steerable torpedo launchers to fire aft...

The fancy launchers apparently are a rare and expensive resource, and the ship can only carry two, so it makes sense to cut pieces out of the ship to give these weapons the widest possible cones of fire. (Or at least this is a rationalization that has some hope of holding water, unless future screencaps reveal that the launchers cannot make such use of the hole after all!)
