Re: AFT NACELLE (Spoilers)

My guess is this whole "nacelles" thing is like the "tech tech tech" thing the writers used to do on TNG. The writers probably just grabbed words from older Trek without much thought to if they were even real. "Nacelle" is a fairly uncommon word to a lot of people (as this discussion proves), so they may have thought it was a made-up Star Trek word.
