While working on converting the holo-viewer model into a useable model for 3D printing, I realized just how much articulation the main engines had. The question is "Why?"

It could be just for looks. It could also be designed that way to allow the spacecraft to fold up and reduce its beam, much like naval fighters, to fit into cramped spaces, which would be just about any hangar planet-side. The engines could also have such a large capacity for vectored thrust to compensate for the ship's mass and allow for "reasonable" maneuvering response.

Any other ideas?
