Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model

@Bob:

The Enterprise-C had similar features on part of the neck. Maybe the problem with transwarp is one of stress or heat / radiation buildup. Preliminary tests and proof of concept were successful, the problem occurs when trying to scale it up. The excelsior could have been designed with a more reinforced spaceframe and venting capability. Hence the massive neck covered with heat sinks.
