Used to enjoy it before I lost track of it.
Never heard that information before about DD wanting to go for a Daedalus-type design if he had the time, that could've been something quite special, or at least more fitting for the design lineage.
Half-remember reading a rumour years ago that Paramount execs wanted the ship in Enterprise (the series) to literally be an Akira, reusing the same design, but a designer, or other staff member, protested strongly just in time. Anyone else remember that rumour, or am I mis-remembering stuff again?
In the post that I'm half remembering, Doug did reference the fact that the Paramount people wanted to just shove an Akira in there anyway. He wished they had just come to him originally too.
