When I look at the Andromeda I see red, glowy things on the upper arms and blue glowy things on the lower arms. Bussard collectors and warp (or slipstream) coils, perhaps? Just food for thought. I like to imagine that Rommie evolved from the Enterprise.
What can I say. Tha't just the way my brain works; When the Enterprise destroyed the Narada, I wondered if it were possible that a few fragments might have survived and winded up in the Star Wars universe, and the New Republic would have to deal with a wierd borg-thing. Blasphemy, I know. But thats just the way my brain works.
