Actually, the schematics call those "impulse exhausts," which sounds like a fancy word for impulse engines, but they're not the impulse engines. Anyway, who ever heard of 4 shuttles bays?
There are a few who believe that the added saucer extensions on the Enterprise B are shuttlebays, not impulse engines. Apparently, the MSD in the movie, or some other graphic has them labeled as such.
I think they're impulse engines...but I don't want to fight about it.
I'm from the other camp, and we could make the same comments about you impulse engine folks, but it wouldn't change the fact that those are gorgeous images, Niytaan. I'm a pen-and-paper man; I wish I could do work like that.
And you're right, Aban. Let's leave that particular corpse in its grave.
That MSD also labels the added exhausts as "Impulse Reaction System", so both engine-pairs must be involved in the impulse drive system. The "old" impulse-pair looks to big to be thrusters, anyway.
When Voyager was inside that big space-worm they couldn't use the impusle engines becuase it hurt the worm, so Paris went with thrusters and said "all of...300 Kph". That's not a lot, and Voyager was the fastest ship at the time, so the former ships probably didn't go faster than that.

Ok, I got a little sick and frustrated with the saucer so I'm going to try and get the secondary worked on a little.
