Got a link to this?
I think it's this one, maybe a little too clean looking for the time period, but cool nonetheless.

I'm glad we didn't get that. It's way too similar to future Starfleet designs. That's also why I'm not a fan of the secondary hull refit they did for Ships of the Line.
By some arguments, the NX is close to a future SF design, the Akira.

It's not a bad thing to see certain design ideas reused either way.

^ This one has the proportions of an Ambassador class with some of the lines of a Sovereign class. Nice looking ship, but I'm OK with the NX being what it was.

What bothers me most is how the saucer is so obviously a rip-off of a flying saucer!!!

Re: NX class and the Akira Class

The obsessive "Akiraprise" complainers appear to have all moved on to this beauty:



"It's too big!"
"The nacelles look like penises!"
"The engine room's a beer brewery!"
"lens flares!"
"Apple store!"

Poor old NX-01's been forgotten

Re: NX class and the Akira Class

Ah, true.

The only thing I don't like about the JJprise is that the aft hull undercut is too far forward. The neck too. MAkes it look like the entire engineering hull needs to be slid backwards.

Move the neck and saucer forward and space the nacelles out a little more and they would've had a winner.

^I like it because it has a TMP vibe.

Of course what do I know, I barely remember which ship is what.

Those were my only real complaints as well. Just a proportionality thing.
