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

The ship looks good. I'm not concerned that it isn't a reproduction of the original "Big E" as seen in TOS, detailed for the big screen.

"A fresh start" worked for Battlestar Galactica. The concept of that old show was fundamentally sound, but looking back on the DVD, I see that the execution was pretty lame. But re-imagined, distilled down to its essence & rebuilt from there, it became the best show on TV.

Star Trek as we know it has been run into the ground - maybe it's time to see some Trek as we've never seen it before. I'm open-minded!

(BTW, as to the hull aztecking being too prominent; I like to think that the Enterprise refit seen in TMP was left unpainted, so the hull materials are exposed, like an American Airlines jet. Maybe this version of the Enterprise is before the brief time period when Starfleet decided to paint the ships.)
