Was it replaced with CGI? Odd, since there is a phaser strip on the lower part of the ship.
The Tamarian ship is "above" the Enterprise, which requires the beam to travel at an upward angle - the lower saucer phaser strip could only shoot to a max inclination of 0-degrees (straight ahead) before carving into the saucer itself.
