Re: If You Could Re-Imagine the Constitution-Class Refit...

Another thing that I would revise would be the size of the ship.

This has come up in another forum that the original concept for the NCC-1701 called for a 540 foot-long ship design which Matt Jeffries changed to 1,080 feet. While Matt Jeffries had later stated the ship to be 947 feet in length, it would appear that at least one ST-fan had actually measured the ship based on various markings on the ships hull and confirmed the 1,080 foot figure.

This would increase the Enterprise by approximately 14% (1080/947 = 1.1404435). The refit as a result would go from 304.7 meters to 347.5 meters (347.493m)
