Re: Can USS VOYAGER separate from saucer section?

Viewers never got to see the Aeroshuttle in action due to the limitations of television and story lines. The craft was designed for atmospheric descent and short-term missions. When it was designed, production intended to re-use the Danube-class sets for the Aeroshuttle. Test shots were created depicting the launch of the Aeroshuttle from Voyager. The launch scene was never completed or used on screen because the producers did not want to trump the similar launch sequence of the captain's yacht Cousteau from Star Trek: Insurrection.
