I resent this. Heavily.

Re: NX01 Refit

This actually makes more sense as a refit than the TMP Enterprise, so

I stand by my earlier comments that this refit makes no sense... the fact that you add all that mass to the original design yet gain nothing in the way of room for more equipment.

It's not like additional space for extra supplies and scientific equipment would be important on a deep space explorer.

I'll just stick with the Daedalus class, thank you very much.

I hate that. Now, thats a bit of ah what's the term fan service?

My gripe with the NX-01 has always been, they should have made it look less like the StarFleet ships we were familiar with - this is just awful on all fronts, this attempt to make the ship have the exact same shape as every other Enterprise.

I didn't like the look of the ship when the show was on (I always thought it should have been a Dadedlous ship), but this is even worse.

My thoughts center around the following model for Bridge Commander...

Much more integrated than Doug's design...

Yeah, I actually like Drexler's refit more than that one. If they'd made the secondary hull a little larger, and actually connected it to the saucer, then I'd like it more, but as it is I don't think they went quite far enough with it.

Re: NX01 Refit

The nacelles look to much like a rocket a 5th grader would draw. I think that the creator couldn't come up with his own version so he took the two enterprises and badly mixed them and called it Atlantis, which isn't a good name to me either.

Atlantis is a NASA Shuttle. The first two ships in the NX class were Enterprise and Columbia which were the first two NASA shuttles. So it stands to reason that NX-03 would be Challenger, -04 would be Discovery, -05 is Atlantis and -06 would be Endeavor and you could even go further and have -07 be Buran(Soviet Shuttle prototype.)

Oh... I'm ever so glad history took the right path for you.

If anyone needs me I'll be in back in 2004, blackmailing Leslie Moonves with compromising photos that could ruin his career, if I don't get what I want!
