Re: Shuttlecraft

Keep in mind that for TOS that impulse engines have been implied to be capable of FTL. That's how the SS Valiant got out to edge of the galaxy in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and how also the Enterprise got around when her warp drive was burnt out or damaged...

Regarding the Romulans, we don't know what makes their ships go in TOS. The nacelles might've been just decorative or fuel pods. Or they could've been massive impulse engines.

As for the shuttlecraft overtaking the Enterprise, why would it or how could it? I seriously doubt any warp shuttlecraft would be able to catch an undamaged Enterprise at warp.
