Re: Can USS VOYAGER separate from saucer section?
Saucer separation was never mentioned in the show, nor in any of the writeups. There's nothing to say that it CAN'T do so, however if it could it would more likely be a case of separating but being unable to re-attach. This was supposedly the case with other starships, as the Galaxy class was meant to be the first ship capable of separation, independent flight of both sections, and docking again without external assistance.
I thought the main reason that we didn't see in the TOS episode "The Apple" was do to high cost involve, and it really wasn't required for the story anyway.
