Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd meet someone who didn't like the Connie refit.
In 1979 when I first saw ST:TMP in theatres - While I did like some elements of the design (the new Saucer, the new torp launcher and the sleeker primary hill); I HATED the new rectangular nacelles (my quick quip line back then was: Intelligence now reports Federation now using Klingon designed warp nacelles...")
- and didn't care for the swept Pylons either.
[I also HATED the new Bridge both in layout and color scheme - and TWO Turbolifts??!! <---- Even though I realized that functionality wise it was a good and understandable design improvement.]
As the years have gone on though, while I have now 'warmed up to the refit Connie; and are okay with and like many aspects I didn't back in 1979 - I STILL prefer the original 1701 Constitution Class from TOS over the Connie refit.)
