Promotional material does not count. That was just some hey look at this hand waving trying to prove Voyager was "different".
Yep. I almost mentioned "Planet of the Titans", a proposal for TMP, in which we were to learn that, at the end of the 5YM, the Enterprise saucer had separated and softlanded on a planet, and was considered lost for a decade. IIRC.
Are you sure about that? The summaries of the POTT treatment all refer to Kirk being "subjected to an electrochemical shock to his brain which brings on erratic behavior culminating in his commandeering a shuttle craft toward an invisible planet. He vanishes without a trace and Spock orders the Enterprise home."

McQuarrie did some saucer separation drawings, but he admitted that a number of of drawings for the project were blue sky pieces because they were working without a script (hence the asteroid starbase, etc.).
