As I revealed to you in an earlier post the reason for the nacelles and the support pylons being like this is as i explained before.
EXCLUSIVE NEWS REVEALED !
I work for ILM.
The reason for the nacelles and the support struts is that the nacelles rotate to alter the direction of the impulse engines which are housed inside
In other words the nacelles vector the thrust from the impulse engines.
This is why they are quite solid and much more robust or lumpy at the connecting points to the pylons as this houses the pivot mechanism which rotates
I can reveal that a red shirt will get killed as he tries to repair a stuck pivot mechanism on one of the nacelles.I can even give you a part of the
I hope this explains the nacelles and why the saucer is further back,this is to balance the thrust through the center of gravity of the ship thrust
and make it look balanced when the nacelles vector the thrust.
I hope this clears the confusion.
If you have any other questions let me know and I will answer them.
