It was a tough call. I hate the NX-Class design, but I had to vote for the JJprise. Its too much of a 'super ship', travels anywhere in seconds, a massive array of weapons, does anything and everything, but still manages to get its ass handed to it.
More to the point, the thing is a butt-ugly mishmosh of bad proportions and exaggerated shapes. To paraphrase David Mamet's State and Main, it looks as if Harley J. Earl puked and that puke designed the JJprise.

I voted for C just because nobody else did so far. But I hate them all.

Re: the ugliest enterprise

C just because it really doesn't offer much to set it apart from the others. It borrows concepts but ultimately looks like it couldn't figure out if it wanted to be a Galaxy class or a Constitution class ship. Never been a fan of the Ambassador class starships.

Re: the ugliest enterprise

The Enterprise from JJs movies. It looks just misproportioned, like an He-Man action figure compared to greek statuary.

Re: the ugliest enterprise

I voted for the JJ-Prise as well. I can't add anything to what has already been said about it. Uber-geek oversized (and that was before Into Darkness) with wrong shapes and proportions. The nacelles are way to oversized and bulbous, especially in the front when viewed from the profile. The engineering hull is proportioned wrong with the tapering toward the shuttlebay happening way too soon.

I guess bottom line is that it's so different from the TOS Enterprise that it makes me repulsed. I do wonder if I had seen the JJ-Prise first if I'd feel different.

I understand the complaints about the D. There are plenty of days I think it's an ugly design, too. From certain angles, however, it looks really sweet. Just don't let it saucer-separate. The whole headless Enterprise-D is ugly from any angle.

I can't wrap my mind around the Entrprise J enough to even comment. We saw it so briefly on screen. Every image I see gives me the feeling that it's incomplete somehow. I really dislike the J alot, too.

No, polls can't be edited. You also forgot the Enterprise-J.

By the way, please don't post three times in a row. That's considered spamming according to the rules. Use the Edit button instead or the multi-quote one if you want to reply to several posts. Thanks.

Re: the ugliest enterprise

I went with the -D. It was a close call between the -D and -C, but the Ambassador class at least doesn't look bloated and squished; it's just bloated

Re: the ugliest enterprise

What, no Enterprise-J choice ? Well, I can't vote, then ! And even then, it's just the least appealing to me. No Enterprise is ugly, in my opinion.

The OP asks for the UGLIEST Enterprise, not the one with the tech or story role you don't like.
