On topic, the Hephaestus' lower hull has some transparency issues with the bow fork. There are some other issues with them listed in the starship errors sticky, as well.
I haven't played my Prometheus type in a while, have you ever added some impulse exhausts to the beta and gamma hulls, yet? They don't have to be visible when the ship is whole; but when it splits, they could be nice and prominent. Insofar as relating to canon, the Prometheus was a prototype ship, like a modern experimental fighter jet. It would not be a stretch of the imagination that changes would be made for the production model.
The red sections are the warp engines, going by the DS9 episode "
Once More Unto the Breach
", as you actually see a BoP drop out and go back into warp. You can see some screencaps on this page:
