Re: Best Enterprise design, again.

Motion picture refit, hands down. The original version and the new version are about the same level for me overall--the first due to how simplistic and silly some of it looks, and the latter because of how ugly some of the choices are.

Re: Best Enterprise design, again.

It's not the refit for me. I really love the original, especially with how it looks in the "remastered" clips. I don't like how the nacelles look on the refit. They just seem to large to me. The original is the best for me.

The new Enterprise holds my heart in her "ample nacelles".

The refit. It has more character then the original and isn't made of suck like the Star Trek XI version.

You WHORE! For nostalgia, I still prefer the very first NCC-1701. TMP refit is second best, while the latest is third best. I don't understand the hate for the new one. Sure, there are differences, but just think of it as yet another refit. In all honesty, I like most of the Enterprises. -- RR

Re: Best Enterprise design, again.

For me the refit generally just barely beats out the original, although I go back and forth between the two. The nu-Ent on the other hand just looks awkward and unbalanced and just doesn't work for me at all.

The refit design is the best in my opinion, though the original has it's charm. The new design is just an abomination.

The Enterprise refit is an absolutely gorgeous design.
