Re: The TWOK Enterprise's torpedo bay revisited

We don't know what "arm" means in this context. Jargon gets reused all the time even if it's out of date or inaccurate. We still "dial" phone numbers, give "the cold shoulder" (minus the original mutton), etc. "Arm" could just mean "inject antimatter into magno photon bays" or some other rubbish.
