Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

I wish people would stop using "art deco" to describe things which aren't. Nothing much in the original Star Trek is art deco.
Most of my few complaints about the refit track back to Abel's art director Richard Taylor wanting art deco incorporated ... hence the saucer rim lines, which scale-wise actually hurt the look, and some of the nacelle detail, which is I think based on an old car (and looks lousy compared with the TOS big spinning ball nacelles, for me at least.)
