The God Thing said:
As much as I truly respect and admire Probert, I am profoundly saddened that he felt the need (or was directed by the studio?) to incorporate so many questionable design elements from ILM's ghastly USS Excelsior miniature into the NX-10521 and, for that matter, the NCC-1701-D.
At least he can do it without making the whole thing look like shit.
Besides, I'm sure he wouldn't mind people modifying the kits anyway for this purpose.
EDIT: Those thin nacelles are really
ugly. I hope he fixes that as time goes on.
