Re: Was there a TMP Enterprise outrage ?

This question is for the old timers.

We've all seen the... rather heated comments about the design of Enterprise for the 2009 movie, so I was wondering if something similar happened in '79 when TMP came out and the now-classic redesign was made.

Wes, there was. Stuff like:

"The new nacelles look like they where lifted from a Klingon Battle Cruiser."

"Why suddenly mount the photon torpedo launcher on the neck?"

"Why two Turbolifts to the Bridge now?"

"Why did they move the location of the science station?"

and more

All the above ending with the (now classic):

"THIS IS NOT TREK!" admonishment.
