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

The difference being that there's no 23rd century for the movie to be set in, any more than there's an historical Krypton for Kal-El to fall from.

Ergo, there's no more or less restriction on redesigning the fictional 23rd century than there has been in redesigning Krypton every few years since the beginning of "Superman" in the comics - and the reason to do so in both cases is simply to update the property to suit evolving tastes and expectations (as well as to let creative comic book and film artists be artists and designers rather than human photocopiers).

My favorite Krypton, BTW, remains Wayne Boring's - from that period of time when he was having all the men on the planet wear those transparent "Saturn's rings" hats.
