15 photon torpedoes doesn't make sense unless you go with the hypothetical DITL torp magazines that have 640 torpedoes in them. And even then, you'd need to radically alter the pod geometry to get more than 2560 torps in there (half of the article's example of a reasonable number for an Intrepid class ship).
Could there be lines of photon torpedoes in the hull struts connecting the torpedo pod to the rest of the ship? Kind of like ammunition belts for machine guns? I tend to think of the Miranda-class torpedo pod in such terms, with the majority of the torpedo magazine extending down the rollbar. There's not a helluva lot of magazine space in the torpedo pod, either for the Akira or the Miranda.
