In MSDs and sketsches only. Whenever they somehow "lost" their core, the famous ship's crew suddenly forgot all about their auxillary warp core...

They didn't. All Riker had to do was make it to the edge of the Briar Patch to contact the Federation Council. IIRC, Picard makes a remark about the new core being installed during his log at the end.

The Enterprise didn't even need to fly to the edge of the Briar Patch. They could've just send a shuttle that made the distress call. It doesn't seem likely that they spent months in the Briar Patch or something - that was likely a matter of days.

As Tumerboy said, I can only imagine that Starfleet got a couple of spare warp cores lying around. Those kinds of things must happen rather often with a fleet that big (and exploration-savvy).

Because it is ugly?

Also, I don't have time to look at the space-area of the screen during combat... My focus is on the HUD during combat... (minimap, enemy indicators on the border of the screen, skill tray, ship status thinge (wich also shows how much shield you have).

Fail. There is no option for "do NOT decloak when any npc starts talking to you".

Also, getting uncloaked smack in the middle of a thousand angry romulans on Big Dig because some idiot npc wants to talk to you about plants is dumb.

He wasn't thinking straight. He was captured and tortured then when he got back to the Enterprise they removed the nano probe and sent him back to work on the same day .... :p

I blame Crusher

OF they could have a spare warp core in cold storage like Voyager did. The MSD display show a second warp core in the secondary hull. According to Dub Drexler the secondary warp core was in cold storage. It would have to be unloaded loaded, assembled and installed on the ship in 2 weeks, IIRC.

That was a great model, but I like Andrew Probert's new Starfleet tug he made for the new Ships calendar:

Star Fleet can tow ships at warp. Most likley a specilazed ship was sent to tow the Enterprise back to earth, where it underwent its refit.
