With all respect to John Eaves, I don't like his take on NX-01 with a secondary hull. It doesn't make sense to me that the way the nacelles are connected would be utterly changed - almost might as well build a new ship. I envision a secondary hull refit as being the existing design with just enough changes to support ventral connectors to a separate hull. The secondary hull should look at least a little "after market". I'm hoping Doug Drexler will agree with me in his design. I'm already leary, though, with the way he's implying he will change the hull coating for the whole ship.
