Re: STID: The ‘Other' Starship / [Spoiler]
It's not supposed to have style or grace. It's a one-off, brute force stealth warship designed to attack from the shadows, blow the hell out of the enemy, and then disappear again.
The F-117 Nighthawk was ugly as sin, but it got the job done. The same applies here.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
