There's nothing sleek or stylish about Church's Enterprise re-design. Quite the contrary. It's a misshapen turd that was squeezed from a constipated anus.
And yet, it seemed to get some pretty cool reactions from the audiences I saw it with. They made a movie, the movie was big, and a bunch of NON Star Trek fans loved the ship; and IMO that was the entire point of the movie, in terms of the ship..plot..casting.
The fact that TOS fans, or Trek fans, didn't like certain aspects of the movie, the ship being one of them, is a step in the right direction.

That's such a great reason to consider something good! Truly... wait, why are you a Star Trek fan to begin with? Shouldn't you have run over to the much more popular Star Wars a long time ago? Or better yet, discard that nerdy scifi altogether?
I'm certain that when Galileo said Jupiter had moons, his entire reason for doing so was because he thought the people would herald him as that funky guy that gave Jupiter moons, as opposed to it being true.
