Re: 3 engine rooms in the TOS Enterprise's engineering hull?

Ah, I meant "already cracked" when saying "pre-cracked", that is, I think Scotty knew fully well that he had a range of crystals aboard, from pristine to really substandard. It's just that this is the best Starfleet could provide him with, (di)lithium being such a rare resource. So he brought them on line one by one, finally keying in the cracked crystal he had been stashing away for a really rainy day.
