That is the starship Enterprise, now,
Strange. Seems to me that there are a lot ships called Enterprise.

And we'll see which one has more staying power too. In 40 years we'll see if anyone gives a hoot about the JJ-Prise. The original proved to be an international icon. 100 years from now I suspect that if an historian had to pick one image to show someone what the fictional starship Enterprise looked like they won't pick the JJ-Prise.

With any luck we'll get a refit in the JJ-verse too.

Now, the Enterprise may not be as big a deal to Paramount as Mickey Mouse is to Disney, but it must be getting close.

It's really pretty awesome that Trek has become that, and the float looks damned good.
I dunno, with a clean slate and the new Enterprise carrying over essentially all the iconic look of the old one, it could well act as the mascot to the franchise as a whole, at least for now.

Not according to some fans.

But fans are like space heaters. All we have to offer is hot air, and not much else.

Not me. I also provide copious amounts of methane with trace residues of hydrogen sulfide!

The just cause it looks cool premisse isn´t that bad, and is a part of the game even today. Not all those lines, curves and other details placed on modern cars and edifications, for example, are really necessary. Design is a part of the game, is part of what make us to buy this or that. So, I believe the same can be applyed to starfleet vessels. Of course that designs are a personal choice, so, what is beatifull for one, isn´t for the other.
Hell, that's how the Excelsior was designed. I mentioned to Bill George that I knew people who asked what certain details were for on the Excelsior, and his reply was "It looked cool. That's why." It's not the Andy Probert approach, at all, but some people like the results.

I think you're actually quoting Starship from this link.

I'd say 10 to 15 years. And then when it all dies down, Paramount will do ANOTHER version, that still won't have the TOS Enterprise in it.

And the B.O. returns from the last film indicate, that in a business sense, Paramount made the correct decision in order for that to happen. If they lose a couple die hard TOS fans who don't like the new film, but gain a fair share of general public fans who will atleast go see the new films, they did it correcting from their POV.
