Re: The Enterprise-E is so ugly

The refit Enterprise was shown being destroyed on television ads for Star Trek III, before the film was released. Maybe movie trailers too, though I don't recall right now. It was hard not to understand what was happening, since a sizable chunk of the saucer was blown away.

From what I understand, Bennett was PISSED when those ads and trailers came out.

Yeah. BOOM! "It's the last voyage of the starship Enterprise!" They gave a major plot point away.

I hate trailers. It's one of the reasons I no longer go to movies. The Star Trek III trailer is an early, and great, example of why.

I would have loved to have seen a more fitting introduction to the new Enterprise, she is one of the characters and deserved better.
A great storming entry into battle would have been excellent; start the film with the Borg attack or approach on Earth and let the first big money shot of the film involve the Enterprise cleaning house.
Interestingly enough an earlier draft of First Contact did start that way.

Also it had the Federation fighting a Borg fleet and holding their own due to new technology and weapons (quantum torpedoes were apparently way more impressive anti-Borg weapons in this version instead of just being fancier photon torpedoes and the Enterprise-E was using some kind of Borg resistant armor instead of regular shields).

Yeah, now that you mention it, one of my best friends from grade school told me that, but fortunately he didn't tell me until well after I saw the movie.

As I've mentioned before, I had no idea...going in spoiler free...so I got the full effect of the Enterprise blowing up.

30 years later and I can *still* remember EXACTLY what I thought and felt when I saw the scene.
