What line of sight? The captain's yacht of the Galaxy/Nebula class doesn't have warp drive, only impulse drive and atmospheric thrusters. The yachts for the Intrepid and Sovereign class do have warp drive.
I was going to jump all over that and say that in chronological appearance, the Nebula class was first.
But I concede defeat none-the-less... Even the original concept of the Pheonix from the Star Trek Encylo doesn't have LoS... sigh...
I thought that would have been a nice explanation for it- give some consistancy and show the evolution of the technology.
Maybe... Is it actually stated somewhere offical that it's impulse only? I mean, I don't want to get into a pissing match over who has the right information. I'm just curious. Is it in TNG's Blueprints for the Galaxy Class? I have it at home, but I'm at work now, so can't look.
The probert image shows a glowing blue strip, with two blue ones below that. If there's one on the other side too, that could be a nacelle?
