Looks more like the spotlights from the TMP version.
Spotlights, Weapons ports, really big-ass windows... who knows. Hey, maybe it's their version of Ten-Forward... "Three-in-the-Round." That's it! It's the enterprise's rotating restaurant!

Re: Enterprise Pic

Oh c'mon, who would paint the name and numbers on the hull of their starship before it is completed - what if it gets scratched

I like it. I am curious how the ship will look in its entirety - the nacelles seem "bulkier", the extra sort of bulge between the bridge area and the rest of the primary hull.

Regardless, I am pumped. New TREK stuff to get excited about. :thumbsup:

Re: Enterprise Pic

You know, a good thing to note here is how positive the general reaction seems to be over just one picture.

Very little negativity...yet.

Feels good to be a Star Trek fan again.

Definitely Goldsmith.

Horner? Meh.

Those look a lot like TMP-era phaser emplacements just fore and aft of the hyphen in "NCC-1701."

That's what I thought too. But I just checked startrek.com and a few other forums and, predictably, many people are losing their shit over this.

I don't see why. I think it looks awesome. I was expecting changes that were way more radical than this.

Re: Enterprise Pic

So check me on this, and forgive the breast metaphor: The nipple at the top is the bridge. The areola below it is decks two and three, and the thing with the big windows/weapons ports/whatever is deck four...

Am I the only one who thinks that line/seam down the center of the primary hull is where it separates to become a transformer...

Re: Enterprise Pic

I'm a bit worried about the reaction so far. We're mostly all drooling over this one small pic. If we see this thing launch from the yards some of us will need to be carried from the theater. Myself included.

Re: Enterprise Pic

I like what I see so far. Its not exactly like the original Enterprise--by far my favorite starship design--but I don't think anyone expected it to be (or at least I really didn't). I'll reserve full judgment until I can see the whole ship in action, since stills often don't do these things justice, but so far I don't really have any complaints.

Re: Enterprise Pic

Well, I must admit it definitely provoked a reaction. When I first saw the smaller thumbnail I was more or less okay with it, but after opening the larger picture and staring at it for around 10 minutes I've decided that I can live with it, but it will definitely have to grow on me. It seems to me too close to the refit Enterprise, and overall a little too
similar to Gabe's reimagined Enterprise.

That said, it's now my desktop.

Time will tell...
