And THAT looks like something from Galaxy Quest
Oh, come on. What does that actually mean? I mean, other than that you don't like it.

Besides, it looks a lot like the Romulan ships from ENT:

I enjoy Enterprise, And I see what you mean. It just loks.....odd. So, yeah, I don't like it. Sorry.
It's fine if you don't like it -- you don't have to apologize to me.

But I'm sick of reading: "Oh, that's sooooo Galaxy Quest... It sucks."

GQ copied a lot of the look of Trek and tried to make it look "real" for the big screen -- that is, they made the movie looks like a bunch of aliens saw an old sci-fi show and turned what they saw into reality.

It is no surprise that updating TOS to make it look "real" has shades of GQ to it.
