Why aren't Federation ships built with two warp cores?
Science Fiction
Earthlings in the 20th century learned the value of putting multiple engines on aircraft: that way, if one fails, you can keep flying. But in the Star Trek universe, Federation ships like the Enterprise have only one warp core. (AFAIK — I can't say I've examined every Federation ship before asking this question.) Why is this so?
