Ahhhh...

I see where you're going with that, it makes sense, since the "cores" they ejected in '09 were relatively small, I like the idea that they're inside the larger cooling/containment tanks. Maybe they're premix chambers where the reactants are heated prior to injection into the final stage NIF warp core.

It also occurs to me that maybe the "water turbine" section should be underneath the intermix chambers, to account for Kirk and Scotty's path in '09 (if one assumes they're on the way to the bridge), that would be a good location for the pumps etc. needed to circulate the coolants.
