Re: Enterprise Pic

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

If you look really close on the bottom right you can see into a corridor--it's got the red and yellow pipes, and everything! Looks great.

Do you mean what looks like the layers of "fan blades"? I agree. Be interesting to see how closely those are used to mimic the original effect once the domes are installed.

And, is it just me, or does it look like the aft end of the engines have sort of a "fin" on top, a little like on the TMP refit?

Nice pic! I definitely like what I see here.

Sweet! Looks pretty faithful.

So...those spinning things under the domes are finally revealed...

The font looks slightly different, but almost the same. It does seem a little misplaced, but that might just be for the shot. Anyway, looking good!

Hmmm, I'm thinking we've got 1 of 2 possibilities (right now): 1 those are the inner workings of the bussards without the outer "cowling" covering them. OR, the bussard's trademark swirl and glow comes from some form of energy reaction

I like what I see so far! It looks like it is pretty close to the original design.

Re: Enterprise Pic

Well, so far I'm not seeing a whole lotta "reboot" fodder in there. The nacelle front-ends look very much like you might imagine the insides of the original TOS ones might look like, I think.

What I DO notice... the font is different (it looks like Microgramma Extended, like in the films, not Machine Extended (a close match to the TOS font).

And the construction of the A/B/C-deck "superstructure" is recognizable but different. Is it just me, or is the topside "dome" too small to hold the bridge (and thus, the bridge must be a deck lower)?

Re: Enterprise Pic

After zooming in a bit on the nacelles, it does bear a striking resemblance to Gabe Koemer's design. If you'll notice, the nacelles in the picture have the same "hooded" front, similar sides, and fins on the back, just as Koemer's did.

Not saying it's identical, but it does appear similar in some respects.
