Re: The OFFICIAL new Enterprise - Let the critiques begin!

HuH? Please expand on that...
Simple, the classic Enterprise is the single most recognized icon of all science-fiction. Only the Death Star even comes close. That's why I've always advocated a much more subtle approach to changing the old girl - the more removed from the design you get, the more unhappy fans and casual fans will be.

It was allowed in TMP because it was 'a whole new Enterprise' and was written that way. The update had a story-driven excuse.

This, however, is a retcon and says 'all that stuff you grew up with is crap, so we're dedoing it'. Coupled with the outright retcon story, I just don't see how this can possibly 'take off' - erm - in the figurative sense.
