I just wanted to find clarification as to firing the Charge from the Soong. The weapon mentions no arc, so can the Soong fire it at 365 degrees?

Thanks!

No. There are several weapons that do not mention firing arcs. Energy Disipators, Focused particle Beams, Missile Launchers, Phased Polaron beams, Enhanced Weaponry to name a few. The rulebook says that attacks are made from your primary firing arc.

In that extra five degrees, you get to shoot twice.

Sorry, I know it's likely just a typo.

Two cards to look at to help set precedent:

Dorsal Weapons Array specifically says you can fire in any direction.

Energy dissipator makes no reference to firing arc. It can only be fired out the front arc of a conventional ship or the 360 for a sphere/cube

EDIT: typos

Thanks for the responses, just wanted to make sure I was on the right page with it.

And I will keep an eye out for those magic 5 degrees
