Re: Kirk's Television Enterprise Deck Plans WIP

IMHO, any power source individually or in combination ( charged crystal power, M/AM direct via bypass, auxiliary power, and emergency battery power ) could be used to operate any machinery like the warp or impulse engines, energize the transporters, fire the phasers and power the shields.

The "main" energizers would be where the crystals are as they would handle all the high-powered energy transfer while the auxiliary or emergency energizers would lack the extra buffering and load capacity of the "mains". YMMV
