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.
All I can say is that these "rules" came out Long after TOS, decades after... And most likely after GR passed away...
They were also relayed unofficially or as hearsay...
I'd bet my life that they didn't come from the mouth of the Great Bird...
