Re: Does More Nacelles = More Speed?
I always assumed that more nacelles meant greater distance rather than greater speed. Not all 3/4 would be needed to maintain the warp field, but the combinations of which were in use could be switched around thus easing wear and tear on the warp coils allowing the ship to travel further before needing repairs/refit/replacements.
