What would be the benefit of sliding nacelles?
not only for looks...but in an engagement the nacelles might be better protected by the main body and scaucer section..that was my thought...oh. and you could maybe use it to manipulate the warp bubble forward for more efficiency...just a wild thought


Those reasons make sense, protection like the in the new Galactica and manipulating the warp field. But for the later, ships have a field balancer that does that so it would be redundant if not unnecessary.

While this speculation is fun, don't you think that a refit Enterprise-E would be operational for another 20-50 years after Nemesis?  If it is, then many unforeseen developments would come along before the Enterprise-F is designed or constructed.

True, and the STO design contest takes place in the early 2500s (yes I know it is really 2011). And there were many developments, including the adoption of slipstream drive, and with the romulan empire gone, hopefully phased cloak.

The Enterprise-F would have slipstream. WEapons would include pulse phasers and Type XIV phasers. Tricobalt/upgraded Quantum torpedoes. New type of multiphasic shields that can be flown in a star. Tougher Ablative hull armor. Longer range transporters. Long term Medical Hologram. It would probably be twice as big as the Enterprise-D. Have holodecks in every crew quarters. have like 20 shuttles and 30 fighter.

"take us out"...
