Re: Why didn't the Federation salvage Empok Nor?

The Reliant also rolls in order to match attitude with the Enterprise. Presumably, all ships do this sort of a little ballet shortly before they begin to share a film frame, and ships of a feather know the rules so they can make do with a simple roll, whereas ships from alien cultures are forced to undergo a more awkward back-and-forth, do-you-lead-or-do-I dance until they settle for a common orientation.
