This is the first Im hearing of that being the reason for the angling nacelles... Even tho the episode was good, I always thought that Warp 5 starfleet directive was ridiculous.
Glad they killed the concept off with DS9.. "Limit the defiant to warp 5 but allow it to cloak" would have been insanity..

I always thought the movable nacelles were to counter the universe destroying warp fields from the TNG ep "Forces of Nature" ? We just watched this on Netflix, not well done, even if they were trying to make a point about the environment.
