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

I think people need to lay off the "fans are ruining trek" attitude, which seems to be posted whenever someone has any critique of anything.

POSTER1: "I don't like it because it's not like the original."

POSTER2: "You are ruining Trek!"

POSTER3: "Yeah you're so negative! You're ruining trek!"

Come on, guys, not everyone is required to love every aspect of the new movie (or any aspect of it, for that matter). If they don't like something, they don't like it. Deal with it. The positive reaction from Fandom has far outweighed the negative, at least here.

Now then. As something of a purist, I'm pretty Ok with this. (a purist being someone who likes the original version best and doesn't have to like something new based only on it being new.) I'm a bit disappointed they didn't go with the TOS design, but I like this new design (so far). It's not the original, but still quite nice. I think they went for a TMP-era design.

It looks very similar. TMP-with-Gabe-nacelles. There are worse things.
Sorry, my signature costs $80, fanboys.
