Tangent pt 4

Warp drive – I hate warp drive. Nacelles are supposed to be just these big field effect emitters that create the warp bubble that let the ship move through subspace – pretty sure that is. Well, that’s what I learned in a Wesley episode (eek). So why do we always make them look like big rocket engines with lots-o-power?

Cuz, 1960’s TV audiences did not know any better.

So… with that whine poured, I have been cobbling together nacelles for this little ship and am getting close. Here are some takes on two versions – the second and third pick are the principal version (so far).

  1. Yeah, they took some of the fun and mystery out of warp drive in TNG.

    I’m liking version 1A a lot. šŸ™‚
