I just don't get the "detour" of the power line near the photon torpedo launcher, I thought there'd be enough space between the launch tubes.
A couple of thoughts:

- That space is probably needed for access/maintenance of the the torpedo launch machinery.

- Probably a Bad Idea(tm) to put your main power conduit to the primary hull right between two of the most potentially dangerous items in the ship. If there were a premature detonation (even a partial yield) of a torp in one of the tubes, you're screwed.
