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.
