Good riddance.
Um, guys... is it REALLY NECESSARY to start getting nasty here?

This is ENTERTAINMENT, not "Holy Scripture." You're allowed to disagree, or to pick and choose what you like and don't like. And it's INSANE to rip into people over it.

Yet I'm seeing people here going into full-bore "nasty attacks" mode... WITHOUT ANYONE HAVING EVEN SAID ANYTHING TO ATTACK IN THE FIRST PLACE.

"Pre-emptive strikes," is that the idea?

Re: Enterprise Pic

I'll reserve complete judgement until I see the full trailer but from this single picture: Wow. I can't remember who it was (Orci?) who said that the exterior would be essentially the same as the original, but whoever it was wasn't lying. I'm a little worried about the nacelles- rotating fans in space?- but, like I said, I'm not going to run around panicking until the trailer is released.

Re: Enterprise Pic

Being a "purist" makes it really difficult for one to just enjoy life.

The Enterprise looks beautiful. Seems I'm not the only one around here who likes it.

Ummmm ..., are you new here ...?



But seriously, as much as I love this board, it does seem that there is a tendency for discussions such as this to devolve into ..., well ..., almost a "holy war."

Let the games begin.

Well, as a purist, I like what I see so far...


Whoops, I mean...I hate it! Or something.

Re: Enterprise Pic

Cary, trying to tell the immature people not to fight is like spitting in the wind. C'mon, I'm with you here, but we both know that on this board there are those who like to talk about Trek, and those who like to make themselves feel 'big' through insults and the veil of an anonymous forum.

I love to talk and read about trek, and make great use out of the ignore function for posters who show themselves to be immature most of the time, I won't waste my time reading them.

Well, since it is still under construction, and as others have suggested, it could be that the nacelle caps haven't been installed -- and, what we are seeing is the mechanism that resulted in the rotating 'screen' in front of the Xmas lights in the large production model.

There is but ONE GOD, Roddenberry, and JJ Abrams is his Prophet! Shatner-u-akbar!

Um... anyone care to issue a fatwa against this new incarnation of the Big-E?

Re: Enterprise Pic

I love the how the ship seems to really have some mass to it. There's not even that much frame of reference, but to me it looks completely real and full of...epic..ness.

Re: Enterprise Pic

I really like what I'm seeing! And it's damn close to Gabe Kroener's design!

She is looking very much like the classic NCC-1701 we all know and love. I know I am going to be there on opening day.

Close, but not quite. It seems to be a, how do I put it, more toned down version of it; definitely has a few refinements but none to the extremes that Gabe took it to. Of course, not being able to see the secondary hull, I could be totally wrong.
