. . . I'm still in the dark whether Doug Drexler's Star Trek Posterbook article, where "Hornblower Effect" popped up, was an actual Jefferies quote or a personal conclusion of Mr. Drexler (apparently he did interview him at some time when he asked Jefferies about the location of engineering...).
Yes, that Star Trek Giant Poster Book article was my source for stating that Jefferies consciously incorporated the "Hornblower Effect" into the design of the Enterprise. Unfortunately, I no longer have my copy of that issue. I didn't know that Doug Drexler wrote that piece -- not that his name would have meant anything to me back in the '70s!
