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.
