Re: Oberth Class the missing link between Enterprise and Reliant

Regarding the nacelles - I'm thinking maybe they vetoed the look because it looked too "simple" for Excelsior, but liked them enough to slap them on the Grissom. Also, we know that the four-nacelle approach was most likely not picked for Excelsior because the Excelsior looked like a new Enterprise, as opposed to a totally different approach.
