It is an intractable problem, and understandably perhaps, the Energy Secretary and the National Grid's have attempted to tackle it through design. The logic goes something along these lines: 1. People think pylons are ugly. 2. Therefore we need to make them less ugly. Q. Who is good at making things look less ugly? A. Architects.

The Delta Flyer dropping out of warp; note the nacelles retracting.  Ships with movable nacelles (Voyager, Delta Flyer, Enterprise E captain’s yacht) look cool, and it can be a good way to achieve a compact design but still let the nacelles move out for proper warp geometry.  But I’ve always worried that too many moving parts could gum up the works.  A solid nacelle pylon just seems more sturdy in battle than a nacelle that has to have gears or whatever moving parts would be in there.  So…
