King: why do you always compare 2009 Enterprise pics with 1966 Enterprise pics?
How else are we supposed to compare the two ?
You immediately handicap the latter by its limited budget, special effects, and the fact the production crew could care less whether the model matched the sets.
The sets fit the size of the original. The comparison is valid.
In my opinion the original's size was quite good, but I don't mind the increase in size for the new timeline. And there is no doubt that it's about 725m long. The shots of the bridge from the exterior, the size of engineering and of the shuttlebay are 'proof' of that.
