Too bad Ships of the Line isn’t produced any more, that would have been a great pre-TOS motive, IMHO.
It was cancelled, but it was pretty quickly un-cancelled, so there are more calendars to come!

I'm not going to go into a dissertation, but my own view on the Oberth is very much along the line of Praetor's views. I'm also of the opinion that the lower pod is a huge sensor suite, and the warp core and other engineering areas are in the upper portion behind the saucer. (I tend to squint when I see the Pegasus' MSD.) And I just don't see the saucer being at all separable - it looks way too integrated to me, especially at the port and starboard edges, where it blends into the "sled" portion.
