Re: NX01 Refit

The NX-01 has always felt a little too sleek to play the part of an experimental first-of-its-kind ship, and this design rectifies that.

Re: NX01 Refit

I don't have a problem with the overall design as it is, but I'd have hated for it to have been used in the show. It's just too close to TOS.

Re: NX01 Refit

That's the point, to serve as a first part of the bridge to TOS.

The NX Refit is the Akira Class starship.

I wish this would have been the ship instead of the Akiraprise.

The Akira doesn't have a secondary hull, so no.

I don't think it really suits the NX class. It just looks like something that has been tacked on and doesn't serve any real purpose.

Re: NX01 Refit

It houses a more powerful warp core, so I'd say it serves a very real purpose.

The larger deflector dish is likely also more powerful and efficient than that tiny little thing at the front of the saucer.

I get that, but it's too much too soon. You've got at least 50-75 years before ships should be looking that close to the 1701.

And why two deflectors? Wouldn't they just remove the saucer-mounted deflector once the new one was installed?

Why not? Yes, it's redundant, but it's probably not worth the trouble of getting rid of it either. The point of the new add-on was to avoid a major rework of the main hull. I don't think the time and effort of taking out the old deflector was worth it considering what little they'd probably have to gain by doing so.

Re: NX01 Refit

I think it makes way more sense for this "refit" to just be added on to the NX-03 while it was being constructed, thereby avoiding the silly redundant warp core and deflector dish in the saucer (which could free up space for other upgrades), rather than bringing Enterprise in and hastily bolting a secondary hull onto the saucer section.

Re: NX01 Refit

It looks like all they did was slap on the TOS enterprise bottom to Enterprise.
Not good at all. I am actually glad they didn't have a fifth season now.
