Blue Warp Nacelles?

Should the "re-imagined" NCC-1701 have blue warp nacells as the Enterprise NX-01 and C through E have? I'd personally like to see it.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

If the Enterprise has blue warp nacelles I shall boycott all parts of the movie that show the nacelles. And by boycott, I mean close my eyes and stick my fingers in my ears.

If I cant see it or hear it, it won't happen.

Maybe they'll have some completely different way of portraying warp drive.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Doesn't Federation ships from some of the Starfleet Battles artwork have the TNG-esque blue glows in the nacelles?

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

The port nacelle should be blue, and the starboard nacelle should be hot pink.

And the blue nacelle should be played by William Shatner.

Anyone ready with the photoshop?

Let's do some pre-vis.

And I think that would be marv-Ah-lous (in my best Billy Crystal). I'm really excited to see a fresh and different take on the Trek-verse.

Can you make him sleek enough to play the blue nacelle convincingly?

Vectoring nacelles? With wings?

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

I don't care about the nacelle colors. I'd like to see the nacelles go thru a transformation as the ship goes into warp. Kind of like KITT with Super Pursuit Mode on Knight Rider. And then when the ship drops out of warp, various panels pop out to slow them down.
