I think that wide impulse engine will look great when they do a saucer separation. The small engine looks better on a combined ship, but it wouldn't look very manoeuvrable on its own.

The wider impulse engines are ghastly.

That's what I was thinking too. Granted, they'd need a good reason to do a saucer sep scene.

I also preferred the original impulse engines. The wider one looks like they've gone back with older technology, since it looks a lot like the one on the Kelvin to me.

Re: Ship Changes in STID (Possible spoilers?)

A possible in-universe explanation for the change in appearance of the bridge: Maybe it´s not a new bridge at all, but the whole bridge module can be lowered into the superstructure for protection. So in the first pic you only see a part of the window, since it´s in the lowered position and in the second one the bridge would be fully extended. Granted, it would make more sense to completely hide the bridge-window from view and possible damage, but still.

Thoughts?

Mario

Great, now I'm picturing the bridge pumping it's hydraulics like some warp-powered lowrider.

I preferred the older engines too - the new ones reminded me when the facelift an older model of car and stick ghastly grills and lights on it
