Re: Visual Proof a Resdesign is a good thing
All you have to do is look at any of Vektor's fantastic TOS artwork to know that, unlike Adam West's batmobile, the USS Enterprise was perfectly designed to stand the test of time.
Just take a look at this picture and tell me that modern audiences would never swallow it: http://www.vektorvisual.com/projects...arHorizons.jpg
It's nice but i believe that even that image has been slightly redesigned. No rotating/fashing nacelle caps, windows on the hull (I never saw windows in tos). I think the rear portions of the nacelles were also redone, so actually, I think you're trying to prove no redesign is needed ... by redesigning. Thus your point is negated.
Styles tend to not only separate men — because they have their own doctrines and then the doctrine became the gospel truth that you cannot change.
