Always wished they had went with this one for the NX-01...
Had they gone with this design, then I suspect right now we'd have people complaining that they were just lazy and didn't come up with something more original.
Complaints about the NX-01 resembling the Akira
-Class, well, so what? The Excelsior
resembles the Constitution
, the Nebula
resembles the Miranda
. Who's to say there weren't a couple of designs between NX-01 and Akira that weren't similar?
I like the NX-01, but then again, I don't really hate any starship design.
