Interesting. I always recalled the Saber having rear impulse engines in that location.

But anyways, back to the Steamrunner. It should have the impulse engines in those square-ish notches in the back of the saucer. Dunno why they frakked it up though.

I would laugh if they used them to turn it into a carrier.

Oh No thank you, that would be a horrible thing to do to the Steamrunner.

More lack of Impulse Engines on the pylons proof.

DS9 battles video, it starts at a Steamrunner flying by with no impulse engines on the back. Happens again around 11:20.

I wouldn't laugh... they've butchered the Akira in just this way. What's next, every ship with a shuttlebay launching fighters?

Yes, but canonically, the Akira never launched fighters, nor was there mention of the capability to do so anyways.

Nice but it also still didn't have impulse on the hull as well. So technically we can consider it works very similar to the Nebula. It even has a close up at 12:00 with two of them in the same shot.

Okay, stop with the Nebula. We all know you like the ship, but this is a thread about the Steamrunner.

(You have the right to shut me up if I start ranting about the Galaxy-class in other non-Galaxy-class threads )

I'm going off about the Nebula because its the only other vessel I know of that doesn't have visible impulse engines. In any other case, the Steamrunner shouldn't have any impulse engines to begin with if we go by on screen footage.
