Re: Franz Joseph Blueprints Revisited
I could be wrong then. What I do seem to recall hearing at some point was that Roddenberry thought an odd number of nacelles would be like a helicopter without the right number of rotors to balance its torque. But unfortunately I can't recall a specific context, so I was trying to remember if any such description might have been floating around. It could have easily surfaced after the "rules" came out.
