I happen to have that picture and there are still 9 big exhaust pipes and no shuttle bay whatsoever.

Re: Ambassador class weapons

Ah, I see... Or, more exactly, I saw. That is, I previously saw a dark cavity in that very photo, whereas turning up the brightness does indeed show a row of black rectangles instead.

Doesn't mean it wouldn't be a row of nine shuttlebay or cargo hold hatches, though. After all, this feature never glows, and it does have that fancy approach control booth thing atop. This would naturally leave us wondering where the impulse engines are if not there, but the underside has some applicable features.

Re: Ambassador class weapons

I think someone posted in another thread that they believed the flat panels on the side of the neck slid backwards to reveal two or three rows of dual torpedo tubes.

Regarding aft tubes, I am also thinking a portion of the neck's spine slids up to reveal an aft tube.

In all actuality, though...the torpedo tubes won't be installed until Tuesday.

Re: Ambassador class weapons

It is also entirely possible, story-wise, that even though they were seriously outgunned and outnumbered by the Romulans at Narendra 3, the Enterprise-C had the advantage of taking the time to read their sensor readings while hobnobbing with the Ent-D crew to get fixes on the Romulan ship positions (and vulnerable points) so when they went back through the rift, they could just immediately open fire...in 2344, the Romulans' sensors probably flashed all white with all of the energy unleashed in their attack on Ent-C, and when it clears up, there will be Ent-C, lashing out with phasers and torpedos.

Except that the alternate crew of the D didn't have info on the positions of the Romulan ships, because the time shift had removed the battle from their history.

Sensor readings from the Enterprise-C. Last-known position readings and all that.

E-C returns from the rift a fraction of a second after departing with newly refreshed shields and unleashes a volley of weapons fire... This causes the Romulans to suddenly get VERY curious about how the ship was able to instantly regenerate like that... so they set about disabling it and boarding it rather than just blowing it apart.
