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
Actually, I love Vektor's
work and I love that redesign - but I'm a trekkie, too. No, I don't think that modern audiences would be impressed with much of TOS's design without some real innovations. The teaser trailer is suggestive of that, though I'm given to understand that the "under construction" shots there are the most TOS-like images of the ship that you're likely to see.
