Re: Vertical Intermix Chamber and TMP Enterprise

In the TV Series, the ship had three reactors that appeared to all be able to power the ship's warp-engines.
Umm, where would we hear of redundancy? Yeah, multiple reactors (warp or impulse) are mentioned in some episodes - but I don't think there's ever any evidence that they all wouldn't be needed for making the ship move. All the warp drive failures in TOS seemed to be single-point, with the villains effecting sabotage at a single piece of machinery, or Scotty performing crucial repairs on the same.
