But the rear of the nacelles were never lit up. on TOS.
Only in licensed merchandise, where some marketing nimrods thought they were rockets that needed to be belching fire. Man, I hated that crap even as a kid.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot — and the hangar deck, too!

Despite the inaccurate rocket blasts, I still think this Bama promotional work is the greatest art ever based on TOS.

I've always loved that poster, too. But you take one look at it and think, Bad day on the hangar deck!

What's odd about it: at high resolution, the woman looks just like Karen Steele (Eve in "Mudd's Women"), and the man with a communicator looks like Professor Starnes ("And the Children Shall Lead"). But they can't be!
