Re: Oberth Class the missing link between Enterprise and Reliant

I've read that the Enterprise filming model was apparently a bit cumbersome, and ILM wasn't fond of it. Since they built the Excelsior to their liking, they considered it much easier to film... and indeed, she was somewhat less of a beast. Perhaps one of them floated the suggestion to use that model instead for practical reasons?
