Re: Where's the M/AM reaction in TOS Enterprise?

There is a third much smaller M/AM reactor in the secondary hull which powers the rest of the ship and is somehow critical in the operation of the other two.
Hmmm ... maybe the ones in the nacelles are basically "switched off" when the ship isn't in warp flight and the one in the secondary hull is constantly active. When the reactors in the nacelles are needed the secondary hull reactor is required to jump start the nacelles reactors.

This might explain what happened in The Naked Time, where Riley completely shut down the system.
