Very nice work, I really like what you did with the bussard collectors/nacelle front cap.
Probably the biggest intentional cheat on my version. I just installed the blinky lights from the TOS ship in the nacelle caps, using the dark blue color scheme on the caps to filter the light.

And, through the miracle of CG, there's a rotating "fan blade" effect installed - even though on a physical model built in 1978 the shape of the nacelle caps would have prevented that apparatus from working.

Changed the conditions of the test, so to speak.
Works out very well in any case, its never explained how it actually worked on the TOS E, might be that its all forcefields and plasma which creates the effect.
