Re: Wave-Energy Collectors, Chambers Coil and Photon Control

I don't agree with the notion that RELIANT is significantly newer than the ENTERPRISE, at least is isn't any newer than the refit version. The novelization references the ship as something like 'this old tub' and perhaps it would have been emphasized if they'd kept RELIANT's design contours the same but put the old warp ball nacelles caps on it, to further differentiate it from the E. But that would have meant ILM having to do some really fancy building/lighting and maybe Minor was told to keep the ships looks like contemporaries.
