Re: Pre TOS star cruiser....
I must say part of the appeal for me is how it has a ring of familiarity and yet it remains different. I can envision this ship as being the first commands of Robert April and Christopher Pike before the Enterprise
and her sisterships were built. It also manages to look less evolved than the TOS era yet without looking clunky.
STAR TREK: 1964-1991, 2013-?
