Re: Was there a TMP Enterprise outrage ?

Hi,

This question is for the old timers.

We've all seen the... rather heated comments about the design of Enterprise for the 2009 movie, so I was wondering if something similar happened in '79 when TMP came out and the now-classic redesign was made.

Thanks,
The reaction was mixed--but not angry, even as early conceptual designs were seen long before the actual version made its debut.

I was a long-time TOS fan by the time TMP rolled around in '79, and loved the original Enterprise (i'm sure I made AMT happy for a decade), but I did not think the change was drastic. The metallic paint scheme of TMP-E seemed sort of odd, but overall, the new design felt like a natual change, not "oooh, look how strange and glossy we made this" just for the hell of it, which I feel is the case with the nuTrek E.

Could you be thinking of the Bricklin?

Horrible. Simply horrible.
That car looks like the inspiration for the TNG dustbuster phaser.

I remember the biggest brouhaha being about the silly uniforms, not so much the ship redesign, which we all sort of saw coming what with it coming after Star Wars & all

I was four years old when I saw The Motion Picture.
I was unfamiliar with anything else Star Trek, and it wasn't until my step dad told me about TOS and TNG that I really became familiar with bigger Trek.
There is no bigger Trek than TMP.

There is no comparison.
