Re: the ugliest enterprise

The JJPrise (AbramsPrise, AltUnivPrise, whatever) looks screwed up to me. The front end doesn't match the back end. It's like they did a saucer seperation. And when they tried to dock the primary hull to the back end, they picked the wrong one.
And now with the new movie. Which I still haven't seen yet. The JJPrise looks as bad on the inside as it does on the outside. I'll guess I will just wait for Netflix.

A lot of fans like the Enterprise-E, but to me it looks way over-designed. (It also looks like a giant alien stepped on it.) It would be more at home in Japanese anime than in the Trekverse.

I really wish people stopped calling it that. Or anything related to the new movies as "jj" something or "abrams" something.
Do you have a suggestion that's less cumbersome than "alternate universe _______" ?

For me, definitely the Enterprise B. It was essentially a re-badged Excelsior, which was intentionally designed to be ugly in TSFS. Definitely an ugly duck in space.

The Abrams Enterprise. It took a wonderful design, which had already had an awesome re-design, and just completely ruined it. Those nacelles are especially terrible.

Runner-up is the NX-01, which is baiscally just an Akira class designed to look "retro."

Hum, well it was never anything else. B was supposed to be of the same class.

Is that your opinion or do you have a quote for that ?

Re: the ugliest enterprise

Yeah, I doubt the Excelsior was intentionally designed to be ugly. After all, at the time it was supposed to replace the Enterprise. You don't intentionally design your new hero ship to be ugly.

The Excelsior/Enterprise-B design has its share of enthusiasts as well. Frankly, I think it looks like a dachshund. And that flat-topped secondary hull -- do they launch airplanes off that?

JJprise

The saucer is OK. The nacelles are too big in front and the blue Bussard collectors don't stand out. The navigational deflector juts out too far forward. Inside the white is too sterile. The brewery seems too big to fit inside.

JJprize, though I am starting to respect it as a character in it's own right. Still ugly though.

Re: the ugliest enterprise

I wonder why so many people harp on the Reboot ship's nacelles. Looks fine to me.

I read somewhere that the Excelsior was meant to look the Enterprise if she were designed by Japanese efficiency experts.
