Re: Does More Nacelles = More Speed?

In the TOS era, when the reactors were in the nacelles, extra nacelles meant more power, as well as the ability to operate at higher speeds for longer periods before maintenance became an issue.
In the TMP+ era, when the reactor migrated into the hull, extra nacelles still provide extra endurance at speed, but only a larger reactor provides more power.
