I love the look of TMP tech, including Epsilon 9, especially compared to the very earthbound look of the ILM SFS stuff like the mushroom dock, which just looks like a glorified blimp hangar to me, and always has. I find the latticework of a zero-gee structure with all the filigree to be pretty exotic, whereas the spacedock of ILM's is just bulk.
I always thought Epsilon was too much the design child of a "what would present day NASA (1970s) build?" The erector-set structure is not at all in line with anything seen on TOS, and does not look like it would fit in the evolutionary deign period between TV and movie.
