Re: Saucer Separation

^^All of them? After all, while Einstein would be quite angry about warp, it doesn't really fit into Newton's worldview, either...

But our heroes have mastered the art of cheating gravity and inertia and frequently apply this to rather mundane purposes. What possible reason would they have for obeying Newton's antiquated rules?

^The saucer also happens to have a very curious visual feature - a series of squares forming two bigger squares, glowing the intense blue familiar from warp engines across the series. Some have suggested these might be arboretum windows, but why would arboretums have intense blue lighting? Or windows, for that matter? Sternbach's own blueprints mysteriously (suggestively?) leave this area of the saucer undescribed... A crucial tactical system not included in the blueprints in case some Klingon purchased the set?
