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.

The reaction was mixed--but not angry, even as early conceptual designs were seen long before the actual version made its debut.

I was a long-time TOS fan by the time TMP rolled around in '79, and loved the original Enterprise (i'm sure I made AMT happy for a decade), but I did not think the change was drastic. The metallic paint scheme of TMP-E seemed sort of odd, but overall, the new design felt like a natual change, not "oooh, look how strange and glossy we made this" just for the hell of it, which I feel is the case with the nuTrek E.
