Agreed.
Are you serious?

I mean, we got major hate for the JJprise even though it was an alternate universe ship. If there was an internet in 1979 and this concept showed up on screen,
even as beautiful as it is here, it would have been one huge WTF-fest.
The design JJ Abrams brought to the big screen was just aesthetically displeasing (I'm being nice here). It took a design that was suppose to be utilitarian and tried to put an artsy spin on it... and it didn't work.

Got to be honest, the design and modeling above are light years ahead of the Abramsverse version.
JJAbrams 1701 design(along with the engineering brewery set) is his passive-agressive way of giving the old fans the finger.
