Re: Lack of Alien influence in Starfleet ship design...

This is just wishful thinking with virtually no proof but tons of speculations, but -- considering the rather straightforward design of the Phoenix, the rings of XCV Enterprise, and then finally the saucer of the NX-01, i'd like to think that the saucer could be evidence of alien influence. The rings are more famously incorporated into Vulcan ships, and perhaps the saucer likewise came from another race, or at the very least is a hybrid of Earth/Vulcan/whoever else's warp theories.
