I wish they had come up with this design for the Enterprise D back when TNG started. I like this design so much better.
I would have been just happy and content if they had actually used Mr. Probert's design for the Enterprise-C
I mean, you can really tell that this beautiful lady's father was a Galaxy
and her mother an Excelsior
In comparison the Enterprise-C
we saw on screen strikes me as an unhappy, orphaned little girl. She wants her dad to be a Galaxy
but seems to be uncertain whether her mom could be the TOS or TMP Enterprise
