Federation Starship Datalink

Go to concept art, and ''Redesigning the Enterprise'' and it should be there - with an interview!

Booooo Hooooo!
Now was that really called for?

As for a TMP Enterprise saucer separation, does anyone know if any of those talented CGI animation hobbyists have tackled that storyboard and rendered it in delicious little polygons and pixels anywhere? I'd love to see that.

And a question about a separated Connie...

On the 1701-D, there were impulse engines on both the saucer and at the base of the dorsal -- but the Connie (both 5YM and refit versions) has them only on the saucer. So does that leave the secondary hull with only the options of either maneuvering thrusters or warp?

Not to be nitpicky or anything, but I'm pretty sure the TOS Enterprise wasn't the flagship. The D was, but not the "no bloody A, B, C, or D" original.

If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will speeak up shortly.

I think most of us here would agree that it was the flagship!

Not really.

In TOS, remember that there were only Starfleet personnel aboard, so the saucer sep in TOS–TUC was intended to be to evacuate the stardrive section in case of reactor breach or some other such calamity, so extra engines on that part of the ship were unnecessary.

In TNG, the Enterprise carried civilians and passengers as well as Starfleet personnel, so saucer sep was for emergencies, yes, but also was intended to allow the stardrive section to go off and complete missions which were too dangerous or sensitive to involve civilians and passengers. You'll recall that this was done in “Encounter at Farpoint,” however it proved to be too costly for regular series production.

I would like to believe that but I'm not even sure that the Fleet had a starship Flagship.
