A nacelle pylon was a large support beam that connected a warp nacelle to the hull of a starship.

While attempting to break the warp 10 barrier in a holographic Cochrane in 2372, Tom Paris reported a fracture in the port nacelle pylon due to subspace torque. Later, after the problem had been corrected, Paris broke the barrier with both pylons secure. (VOY: "Threshold")

In an alternate timeline in 2374, USS Voyager's nacelle pylon began to buckle as a result of encountering a micro-meteoroid shower while operating without the use of its navigational deflector. (VOY: "Year of Hell, Part II")

According to the shooting script for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, in a line cut from the theatrical film, the nacelle pylons are referred to as the "engine pylons".
