In Star Trek Eleven, was there ever a explaination as to why the tendrils projecting behind Spock's jellyfish starship spun?
Yes, I know that they spun in the movie for the sake of appearences. But in-universe did the novelization, the tie-in comic books or interviews with the production team ever go into the reasoning behind the spinning motion?
I assume the tendrils are the ships warp engines, but when nu-Spock took off from the Narada the tendrils were spinning right from the start. So maybe they had to spin for the jellyfish to move at all?
