Post Enterprise Upgrades.

Ok so I noticed alot of things in E that seemed new or just different heres a couple I'd like to see what others have to say.

The window/ Viewscreen in the bridge.

The six? warp cores they ejected.

The general size of everything like the engine room and bridge/ other corridors.

The Big Turbolifts.

I actually liked the engineering sets.
One thing about the turbolifts... they must be fast! How long does it take for Spock to go from the shuttlebay to the bridge? 5 seconds?

The multiple warp cores thing was interesting. Makes sense too. If one breaches, eject it, and you've still got some left. The detonation of one of these minicores is probably smaller and safer than the detonation of one huge one.

I think that some of the 'warp cores' we saw being ejected may have been other things:
-Pieces of the hull torn off by the gravity well
-Hull plating covering the core ejection shute
-Antimatter storage
-The warp core being ejected in separate components, rather than one big chunk - for instance, the intermix chamber, magnetic constrictors, and main plasma conduits/storage

I would really love it if the writers would take questions like this. :P

So logically why did they go from one core in say Voyager to six is is just ship size or were they going backwards? Or is this just movie stuff and shouldn't be compared to shows. Also would the smaller cores mean for slower top speed because of lag times between the cores and all the stuff it takes to make a core work? And as it would make sense for a small ship to have one big core because then it could go alot faster than if it had say three mini cores. And the turbo lifts. Yes it would seem to me that they are alot faster than in the older shows and movies.
