It still looks to me like the [random] flak spread is a cube shape, rather than being a random 'sphere' of flak... something for the coders to look into, really

How do you know if you have never seen it in game?  The pics don't do it justice at all. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Well I've seen clips of the BtRL flak focus-firing on an incoming Cylon missile, and that looked a lot like what I think I'm seeing here too.

That was a demonstration of the flak wall effect IIRC. It's meant to be flat.

Eh... it wasn't flat like a wall, though. It was boxy like a cube.

It's pretty hard to gauge whether or not it's a wall or a cube from 2d screenshots. Until the game or at least a trailer showing this is out you'll just have to trust us we're doing this right.

Screenshots? It was a video!

And there I was, thinking you were actually discussing something ontopic using shots from this thread. Silly me :) Try not to worry about trailers of a different game.
