Re: Which part of the ship is this?

Well the engines could have been built say by Martin-Thikol and shipped as modules to the yard and installed on the pylons.

Sort of like how a nuclear reactor is built off-site, and shipped to the yard and installed and all the piping and pumps are installed there by the construction workers.

You'd have to remove some sections to get at the connections and to install bits and pieces that are specific to this one ship at the yard that's what we could be looking at.

*shug* I have a uncle who worked for E-B in Groton Conn. for a number of years I'll have to call him up and ask him some questions. Also I'll have to get some books on shipbuilding too.. that'll help fill in some blanks on my end.

Well ? What should we call it then ?

The "Cowl" looks just like his design he did for SOTL Enterprise, so a few are calling it that allready.

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

As for welding near "Giant Electromagnets" I'm assuming these nacelles are nowhere NEAR powered up and electromagnets only become magnetic when electro-fied thus the name.

Relax folks, shipyard workers are highly skilled professionals let them do their jobs. Also they are Union workers so don't ask them any questions otherwise they won't finish the job on time:

You guys can call it whatever you want. Call it the "Gabe Cowl" if you want. I will abstain. I can't even conjure up the guy's image without getting douche chills.

In fairness, his "animae enterprise" was a fine design, for what it was. It's weird to give a name to a design from another designer to describe another designers work... a design we only see bits of.

This is tricky, ethically.

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

If it's a nacelle, the scale of the workers makes this ship the size of a galaxy class (perhaps no child labour laws in the 23rd century?). I'm with Uss Stardis in thinking we're looking at the top of the engineering hull, though the scary possibility is that we're looking forward from the rear of the saucer to the back of the bridge dome, making the rear, dorsal profile of the saucer pretty funky with some steroidal shoulder "humps". If it's not a nacelle, I hope Uss Stardis is right.

Then what is that dome between the "intercoolers"? Look at the same pic you posted, see the rear top of the main section, that little dome. Thats where I think we're looking towards.

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

I couldn't figure out what this part of the ship was either. I didn't realize the sheer immensity of the ship that the nacelles were so big.

I wonder if the ship will have a deflector dish like the tv show version, or a lighted deflector like the refit.

You mean like the Suttles SRB's are bulit by whoever and sent to the cape where they'er attached to the ET ?

Of course all the parts have to end up in the same place some time. I was figuring the engines were shipped there fully assembled from another plant. I was looking for a GE or Boeing logo somewhere on them. Or maybe even Rolls Royce.

That looks a lot like V'Ger actually.





That would be a cool homage if intended...
