Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

Plus, isn't the primary engine core of a Borg vessel both enormous and extremely complicated? I can't recall if we've actually seen the engineering section or core of a Borg cube or other large vessel, but I believe the impression was given during TNG, First Contact or VOY that the engines of a Borg ship were extremely complicated pieces of advanced machinery not to mention huge.

The Borg Collective was one of the most powerful and technologically advanced species in Trek, much moreso in many respects than the Federation, so if their vessels could have huge, extremely complex engineering sections to propel their ships then it shouldn't be too big a deal if a 23rd century Federation starship - especially one in a new and alternate timeline - has a warp core that looks like this one.
