To be sure, the big blue-glowing things at the ends of the booms were never called "impulse engines" by our heroes. The smaller glowing things on the saucer aft rim were.

From "Minefield", as regards the mine clamped right next to one of the saucer aft rim nozzles:

T'Pol: "Captain, it's lodged near Impulse Reactor 2."
The saucer engines resemble the TOS ones in looks and size and placement; the boom ones look more like TNG era tech - and perhaps best approximate the warp engines of the Defiant from DS9! Perhaps they are in fact part of the warp machinery? They could be important warp field emitters, or then incidental features such as vents for excess or spent warp plasma...

Timo Saloniemi
Doug Drexler and I have briefly discussed this. Those are Impulse Rockets found at the aft end of the pylons. Even though they are "Impulse" technology they are not fusion based. They use plasma siphoned off the warp plasma transfer conduits. That plasma is then compressed then funneled through a subspace field device and vectoring nozzle similar to what is found in the impulse engines of the TOS and TNG eras. The smaller engines at the back of the saucer are powered by experimental fusion reactors and used to supplement the eps system and the primary impulse rockets.

But from what I understand, the impulse rockets and their various parts are the simple great grandparents to their 23rd and 24th century progeny. The basic bones are there but they are not completely refined to technology we see later.

(And for continuity's sake, Geordi mentions to Scotty that Impulse Technology had not "changed much in 200 years" in the TNG episode, "Relics". This interpretation of the NX impulse systems falls nicely into that statement.)

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Between the glowing bits of the TOS and TMP saucer impulse units are also aux. systems as well, correct?

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Just did a quick flyby. Well, I say quick, it took in total about 14 hours to render...

Love how you put in some music with the flyby. Going to do any more?

Yup, if this was anything to go by though, it'll be a fair few days until I manage to get something done

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

I've made a little montage of all the vids i've made featuring the NX. The final piece with The Romulan BOP is something I did today (Including making the BOP itself :P).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8cj5uIUMkA

EDIT: Crap, does anyone know how to embed youtube vids on here?

Enjoy!

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Thanks AstroSmurf! I'll keep that in mind.

I thought you guys may be interested in that Rommie BOP I made yesterday...It's only a quicky (made in about an hour) and at 5000 polys, it's very low mem friendly (renders up in under a second). Yet, I think it holds up fairly well, especially for animations...

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Another great video. Would be nice if someone could do like a mini episode featuring NX-01.5. I'm hoping the refit gets mentioned in the next RW book.

That Bird of Prey looks outstanding for being so low poly. Well done.
Any thoughts of adding Eaves concept of a painted bird on the underside?

Okay, do you copy the embed code that YouTube cooks up, or the web address?
