Well it is annoying as hell having slowly spiral up or down to get at a target above or below us, Roddenbury wanted a ships a sea look, CBS doesn't want upside down ships? Well hell Roddenbury is dead and what the hell does CBS care as long as they're getting their piece of the pie.
I can imagine the scene in Wrath of Khan where the Enterprise pops up in back of the Reliant replaced with one where the ship slowly circles upwards while Khan and his crew watch in amusement.
"Khan-What is he doing? Joachim-I think he's trying to sneak up behind us sir"
Fine Fine, does it disrupt canon in any way to let ships translate up or down, or to use the submersible analogy, surface or sink?
