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


you expected trek fans to go nuts?

They're not Transformers fans
They're not Batman, superman, spiderman fans.........they're Trek fans

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

Contractor response. Fleetspec 144/2545/299577 allows 0.025% damaged exterior paint under current contract. Willing to renegotiate contract [to cover underbid] by 3.5 MCred to repair scratch.

I wanna see a teeny little worker trudge through the "7" and leave black footprints behind as he crosses the hull.

I didn't think everyone would be happy with this design...
I've already stated my opinion on the design. Which is I like it. But I also think that the nacelles will probably still look like that.

As far as James Cawley's dissastifaction goes, it's clear that the design is not identical to the TOS Enterprise; there are more lines on the hull and Cary L. Brown has noted that a slightly different font is used.
Anyone who would honestly argue changing the font was somehow implausible, or in violation of canon, or overtly detrimental to the design (within reason) is a nit-picking for the sake of it and in need of a reality check. They can probably slap a new paint job on a starship in a matter of days! Simple hull lettering in hours! The font works here, no problem.

This pic makes me excited!

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.
I triple dog dare people here to, when they see the first sight of the new ship onscreen, scream "They got the nacelles wrong!" from their seats.

About the nacelles. You're not thinking they are curving inward are you? As far as I can tell, they are the same dome shaped fans but lack the actual dome, nor i there any back lighting. I think this creating a difficult optical effect.

The 'airplane' comment from the description of the trailer, and some comments I've read here, make me wonder if that's what people are seeing. I can certainly see that, I had to look carefully to understand.
Clearly, they are still under construction; so I have a feeling that once complete, they'll look similar to how they looked on the TV show.

What amazes me is the implication that all this is being built on the ground; and will then somehow be launched into oribit from the ground.

Re: Enterprise Pic

I'm really blown over by the redesign. It's nice to see the Enterprise in all of today's technological wonder. I have held my breath over this since the movie was announced. And it seems my worry really paid off well. The Enterprise (so far) looks gorgeous. The saucer section is just not so much of a departure. It's just a blending of the TOS era ship and the movie era Enterprises. It maintains the overall cannonized shape of the saucer section but just updates it with the hull plating and updated detail on the saucer's surface. I fail to see what's so wrong with the saucer section. I'm curious to see the impulse thrusters on the back of the saucer section.

The nacelles take the most getting used to. But it's still really exciting to see the ship upgraded with all it's fancy starship eye candy.

On a side note, I can't help but to be extremely impressed at the photo! It in itself is a work of art. Despite being CGI, it looks like a person was there on the tip of the saucer with a holocamera. It looks REAL. It's spectacular.

Re: Enterprise Pic

I guess they figured it was unwise to change the outside appearance too much since the interior will most likely be totally revamped lol.

They get a cap. The turbines are meant to give the layman some idea of the inner workings of the engine systems. It also gives the nacelles a more "muscular" look.
It also provides the sense that the Enterprise actually works instead of just is. I'm not sure if I explained that right. It's a "realistic" touch, very detailed. I like it.

Re: Enterprise Pic

If the movie will have this level of CGI it will be amazing!

The nacells look incredibly real, even the light scattering is perfect!

Re: Enterprise Pic

It makes sense to build the hull section on earth and lift them into space. It cuts down significantly on EVA time for workers.

This is exactly how it should look in a motion picture made in 2008. Looks fantastic.

I agree. I'm having a fangasm over here.

In the theater I expect to hear:
-- at least one painful groan,
-- a loud rant followed by storming out of the theater,
-- someone breaking down in sobs,
-- a "Fuck you, Abrams," shouted out of nowhere,
-- a cry of, "They HAVE raped my childhood," and
-- Junior Mints thrown at the screen by someone.

While the rest of us enjoy the cinematic beauty of it all.

-- Oh, and someone's cell phone will go off. Always happens.
