Looking forward to seeing the Constellation in her doesn't-look-like-a-cheap-plastic-model glory!
I never cared for the 1017 registry, though. Even if it is a totally different class than the Constitution-class, it's similar enough that it could only be a mk1/mk2 kind of thing. That doesn't really justify the low registry. Maybe the NCC-1017 was actually an entirely different ship class in decades before, and after an exemplary service record, it was retired, but rechristened as a Constitution-class starship (albeit an earlier, more primitive model than the Enterprise). Sort of like what happened with the 1701 to the 1701-A, but before the letter designations came into standard use.
So there'd be the "original" Constellation, and the Constellation we see in TOS.
Anyways, that's just some random ramblings. I eagerly await more updates!
