Re: The OFFICIAL new Enterprise - Let the critiques begin!
The 'seams' are actually a little over a meter in width (don't believe me, just put a person from the image near one... the Galaxy class's seams ARE measured in meters). The idea that they're part of the 'shield grid' is a TNGism to explain it away - despite the fact that they're an amateur modelist's 'trick' to show scale.
Really, I thought it was a TMPism. That is, after all, where they first appeared.
