I don't consider any ships in STO as a valid part of Trek, so I doubt that anything with the name Enterprise in STO would change that. If anything, STO will finally find a way to produce an Enterprise that's uglier than the JJ-Prise.
Well, if we use the Titan contest as a precedent ...
There were so many designs that were better suited for the Titan than what they ended up with... our very own Praetor's design was my favorite, and I've told him so.

I am glad I am not the only one out there that doesn't like the Titan Design. No offense to Sean he is a damn good artist but his design is very clunky and ungainly. Now as for the contest. I might just enter this one. Didn't know about the Titan contest till after it was done.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Eh, Sean's Titan grew on me. It's not drop-dead gorgeous, like say, the Galaxy, but it's a little more like a mini-Nebula, in that it looks the part of a workhorse. I guess people expected a glorious space swan after reading the initial descriptions, but hey, that's just like my opinion, man.

I'll say what I said for the Titan contest: I want a neck. Most of the recent ship designs have been pretty flat, and I miss the "tall" ships.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Oh, definitely! I love that design, but I doubt it would win simply because it's configuration is different from the rest of the Enterprises.

I'm tempted to enter my new Legacy-class, but I think at first glance it looks too much like the Sovereign to have much of a chance.

I'll bet a lot of the submissions are going to have that problem. Me, I'd love for the new design to look something like a massive version of Spock's Jellyfish from Star Trek '09.

Ironically, we'll probably never see a truly canon version of the Enterprise-F, since we'll probably never see the prime universe any more. And...December 9th? That's only a few weeks from now. There's no way they're gonna get a well-though-out design in that time, unless people are just gonna send them old stuff, which kinda defeats the purpose of creating a new design.

Just as depressing as the fact that nowadays some low-budget fan productions tell better stories than the multi-million canon projects (VOY, ENT, ST10&11, ...).

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Dec 9 is plenty of time to get a few idea down on paper, before they give the full guidelines. I already have a couple sketched out. Unfortunately my ideas end up
sorta looking like Voyage from the side.

Well, that's when you can start submitting designs, but there's nothing there saying when the contest will end yet.

My bad. I thought that was when the contest ended. D'oh!
