Endurance depends on how much fuel you have. It's all arithmetic!
I thought Endurance depended on Shackleton?
Har! Good one! Do you have any Roald Amundsen jokes?
He explored the Antarctic. I hear he was a really cool guy.

ISTR something about the Enterprise-D having, in effect, double nacelles - each being constructed out of parts that on a smaller ship would have been two complete nacelles. Is that so? If it is, then that makes four-nacelled ships even odder.
IIRC, that was an after-the fact justification for the Space Battleship Enterprise from All Good Things. Both the Tech Manual and the onscreen graphics show one set of warp coils per nacelle.
