I guess I would have expected a little more "creativity" than what we got in that scene then.
Leave off the secondary hull and glue the two warp engines under the neck to make a fast destroyer type. Or maybe leave the secondary hull and attach the warp engines to the primary hull, either above or below - doesn't matter. Something
that demonstrates a little more inventiveness than what appears to be nothing more than a lazy and a mucked-up refit build...
Maybe not incompetent - a little harsh, yes - but I would never
assign the word "creative" to that mess.
