Re: Another take on the Original Enterprise...

Very interesting work.

I have been curious about the "1080-feet" school-of-thought for some time now, but I never waded more than ankle-deep into that discussion.

Have you considered what this would do to interior space in the aft of the saucer rim (impulse engine room)? What kind of space could be found there for impulse engineering? (One of the confusing asides in "The Day of the Dove" was that the Klingons controlled Deck 6 and part of Deck 7, which would've made "the final battle" take place in a much smaller impulse engine room "near reactor number three".)
