Re: TOS Enterprise - function of warp nacelles' caps?

Are you suggesting that Spock's mother died in one of those episodes?
I'm just reminding y'all of the fact that Spock's distant human ancestor was long dead in "Corbomite", but turned out to be her still living mother in "Journey to Babel". The universe hiccuped in between, and we're expected to pick up the pieces. Which we do, pretending that Spock was speaking of her mother all along, even though this is nothing but a clumsy retcon...

In anycase, there are some technological differences between the TOS-verse and ENT-TNG-verse. It's not a slam dunk to assume that the domes would have the same function between the two continuities, IMO.
But again, TOS itself is a mosaic of continuities. If we treat it as an intact whole, we could just as well extend the courtesy across the range of spinoffs.
