Re: Does More Nacelles = More Speed?

I always figured the four nacelle design was something they played with but never could get to work efficiently as a two nacelle design. Picard described the Stargazer as underpowered on a few occasions, so either the design was incredibly power draining or their current technology couldn't efficiently power all four of them along with everything else. The ship was never mentioned as breaking any speed records or anything.

Not to mention there are twice as many things that can go wrong when someone starts shooting at your ship or some other dangerous situation that can damage the ship presents itself.
