Dummy NacelleEdit

My basis for this is from the observed motion of the Armstrong. When the ship warped, the Armstrong produced two warp contrails from the outer nacelles, and none from the third nacelle. It's not unusual for ships to have a dummy component. The RMS Titanic had a dummy funnel. Dummy components, such as the funnel from the Titanic, were used for ventilation and aesthetics.(I have considered the possibility that ILM goofed. However, instead of overrationalizing, I arrived at a simple solution. A solution which has a basis in historical precedent.) – Throwback 00:06, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

We should not speculate on the function of this alleged "dummy" nacelle. While that might make sense, it should not be a part of the article at all if it is purely our conclusions, and only in a background section if production sources stated that was the case.--31dot 00:19, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Quick QuestionEdit

May I ask this, why in the Kelvin timeline, the classes are referred to as "types" and not classes, such as the Newton-type, the Kelvin-type, and the Armstrong-type?

Its a trivial question, but Im a bit curious. WikiPager3 (talk) 02:31, October 26, 2016 (UTC)

Because a class name was never explicitly named, so MA has described them as types based on the name of the initial ship typically seen in the class/type. -- sulfur (talk) 02:36, October 26, 2016 (UTC)
