Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Not to stir the pot, but there is a rationale for impulse engines being reactionless and not actually emitting an exhaust that would incinerate the nacelles or pylons or whatever. The mere fact that they are capable of operating in reverse argues in favor of this.

That being said, I've always made a point of not putting anything directly behind them myself, but I'm not personally inclined to criticize those who do.
