Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed

Throwback, as much as I agree with your post above - I also understand that it's all just part of an artistic license, also - the writers of this and the previous one always said they wanted their vision to be more grounded in reality, to be more accessible for broader audiences. Black-angular-mean looking? A stealth vehicle, everyone, without sophisticated military knowledge will know this at first glimpse. Any other sci-fi movies and shows used the same tendency, let me grab the closest example I can think of - BSG. Normal Vipers were white, with red stripes, lots of lettering and emblems, pretty much Starfleet style. Stealth fighter, the Blackbird looked like this.
