Yeah.. a Constitution-class defending me I'd feel extremely safe especially if it's the Enterprise. ^_^

A Heavy Cruiser is a real comfort to a travelling man...course it also screams hey this convoy has valuable stuff on it...Draws every Wannabe pirate lord in the sector....They don't attack right off the bat.They lurk right on the edge of sensors, and wait If the cruiser to get pulled off by Starfleet mid run.... then!, your swimming with the Blood Eels.

The thing I really hate about Star Trek, is that they just let in strangers that say they are friends, and they let them just wonder around in top-secret places that strangers shouldn't even see... Then the next thing you know, half of the people on the ship are dead. And the stranger goes off with thousands of dollars of supplies. The end c:

If I think about it too much, the off-center placement of the warp nacelles bothers the physicist in me.

So I try not to think about it.

Well given they're field generators and not newtonian thrust devices, why would it matter? It seems that it'd be more key that the impulse drive was placed at the center of mass?

I did have a brillant reply to this invoking magnets as field generators and expectations of spherical field geometry with the generator at the center and going on to wonder if the nacelles are even actually the generators because there are ships with one nacelle below the saucer and ships with extra nacelles, some above and below, and wondering if a multi-nacelle ship with one blown off can even wa, and if it can, maybe the nacelles are just for power because, otherwise I'd sort of expect them all to have the same number of nacelles - and then I pressed an "undo" button that I'd never noticed on my iPad before and then my reply WAS GONE, and I'm too demoralized to recreate it or even try....

Yes... and no. I suspect you're mostly referring to the distance between the Ta Yun-Ho and Enterprise? If so it's an illusion. Another Constitution class ship could pass between them. But generally speaking, this is a tighter formation than I'd prefer to imagine, but they're all in distant orbit and not under power. Safer that way when you're this tight.

okay. Guess it was just the angle made it look like the Ta Yun-Ho was almost sitting on the Enterprise.

If you are not safe with the Enterprise beside you, you will never be safe in space.
