There's a picture that comes to mind in situations like this....

I've seen those Whitefire blueprints before. I can't really remember where. I think they were in PDF form and I got them off some P2P network or obscure Trek site.

Edit: What ep was it that Geordi mentioned the tursiops? I don't recall this.

I do like the shuttlebay design on that blueprint though I agree that the ship looks smushed. Looks like she tried to fly through the garbage compactor on the death star.

I've just finished the interview...thrust reversers on the impulse engines, hm? Interesting. I recall reading (in one of the tech manuals or encyclopedia or some other thing) that the impulse engines had drive coils to reduce the apparent mass of the ship, and that slowing down entailed discharging the coils and increasing the mass - using inertia to slow down, in other words. I wonder who came up with each idea (on the production/writing staff)? Too bad neither of those ideas were ever canonized.
