The interior feel of the ship is also one of the reasons why I love ENT
, for the reasons already stated.
And what's true about the ship is also true about the crew. People are rougher around the edges, they have insecurities and flaws, they're both excited and afraid of what their mission involves. I really liked the notion that this really is the first crew to go on a long-term deep space mission. Of course there are going to be mistakes and bad decisions, but that is only true to life.
