Re: Vertical Warp Core?

A vertical warp-core could be easier to eject in case of emergency.
Remember... a star-ship produces its own artificial gravity field... therefore, the weight of the object will go towards the 'bottom' of the ship At least from what we've seen).

A horizontal warp-core would be problematic for ejection if the systems that 'push' the core malfunction.
In a vertical design, the ships gravity can push the core out of the ship (or something to that effect) seeing how that is usually the last thing to go out in case of catastrophic failure.
