Have those who disliked the Abramsprise finally accepted the design?

Yes or no will do unless you feel the need to wax positive or negative.

I don't see this going anywhere good, but maybe with a less pointedly provocative thread title, it may have a chance of turning into a productive discussion.

Initially I didn't like it, until I realized that every hero ship has something that bugs me (in this case, the position of the neck and how close the nacelles are to each other).

Still, she's a beauty in her own right.

Re: Have those who disliked the Abramsprise finally accepted design?

I don't see why they have to come to accept it.
Some things you either like or don't like and life goes on.

The endless threads of "I like it, I don't like, you are stupid for liking it, you are a moron for not liking it, the designer is a hack, the designer is god" are boring.

Yes, yes I know...don't like, don't enter

I agree; the more I look at her, the more I accept the very things you listed as initial turn-offs.
Anyway, just checkin' the levels, like any good dipstick will...

Re: Have those who disliked the Abramsprise finally accepted design?

I never really hated it, but I like it a lot more now than I did originally. So long as its not some preposterous behemoth of over 700 meters in length, that is. Fortunately there's a good case to be made for a size closer to that of the original.

I still don't much care for the interior sets such as the bridge and especially engineering, but I can get past that.

Yeah, I have my issues with MANY aspects, but hey, back in the day (1979 to you kids), I HATED TMP's bridge! I was like, "Where's the COLOUR?!?!?!?"
Now, boy, we GOT colour, eh?

Re: Have those who disliked the Abramsprise finally accepted design?

The design doesn't bug me anymore, no, but I'm not its biggest fan. I still feel that the upgrade makes the Enterprise seem needlessly bulky and cumbersome. But not in any significant way - they tinkered with the wheel, but they didn't break it.
