Re: Saucer Separation

Not only makes for an ugly tv ship, it's an absurd concept:

The fact that that the rear section is called "stardrive" implies the front section is not the stardrive so the saucer can't go at warp speeds (which was already evident because it has no nacelles, what, according to treknology up to -- or since-- Cochrane's Phoenix, are what makes the ship go to warp).

And if the battle section goes into battle (duh) and is destroyed or disabled, the remainig womens an chidren remain stranded in deep space in their slower-than-light lifeboat forever.
