Which would bring us right back to the same reason the design was rejected forty-odd years ago, i.e., it's rather dorky overall, no matter how you gussy it up.
I've always liked the design myself.

Some of the early attempts, like Sisko's model, look pretty bad, but Aethernaut showed how good a basic design it is in his attempt.

This is what Archer's Enterprise should have looked like!
I'm really starting to get tired of this phrase, no matter what design it gets applied to.

Re: Daedelus, ala April

Nice pics, but I'm sticking with a saucer hulled Daedelus.

Sticking warp nacelles on the Discovery just doesn't work.

I'm wondering if it might be better to try and kitbash this thing...

What vintage is your machine? (Processor, hard disk, operating system, etc.)

Re: Daedelus, ala April

I don't know. I can't get the thing to fully boot up enough to get that info (and thanks to the way Apple does things, I'm not entirely sure where to get that info anyway). I do know it's running Mac OS 9.2, but something is hanging up the process.

It might have something to do with the AOL disk it refuses to eject (I'd like to find the dimwit at Apple who thought it was a good idea to NOT have an eject button).

On the newer models, holding <space> while booting up ejects the disk.

I believe that holding down on the mouse button during boot-up will eject a disc from the optical drive.

It sounds like your iMac is either one of the original iMac models (first introduced in 1998) or somewhere back in that time frame. These machines did not use Intel processors; the were driven by PowerPC G3 processors manufactured by either IBM or Motorola/Freescale.

Just in case you were not aware of it: The Macintosh operating system is indeed different than anything you may be accustomed to on Windows. From a Mac user's perspective, that's the point. Apple is un-Microsoft. And also in case you are not aware: Windows software will not run on a Mac, any more than it would run on DOS. Wrong operating system. EXE files will not run. Macintosh-based software runs on a different architecture. Unless your Paint Shop Pro comes in a version that runs on Mac, it will not run at all on your "new" machine.

Newer Macs use Intel processors (2006 and newer); they can load WinXP or Vista and run both MacOS X and Microsoft OSs easily. Older Macs (early '06 and back more than 6 yrs.) with G4 processors could run Windows under hardware emulation. Macs of the vintage I believe that you have are way too old for that; they don't have the horsepower to handle a recent operating system.

Seconded. The NX-01 was, IMHO, a fine design.

Are we then assuming that there is a disconnect, or a loose connection, between the Starship Daedalus and the Daedalus-class of Federation starships, of which the U.S.S. Essex was a member?
If you're referring to the Daedalus from the ENT novels, there's no evidence for *or* against it being the class ship for the Daedalus class. It could be that same ship, it could also be completely different. If it's the latter, then the USS Daedalus was probably built as a memorial/tribute to the loss of the original ship and its crew.

Non-canonically, I do believe that subsequent ENT novels *do* treat the novel-version Daedalus as the class ship, and even have the Essex, Horizon and Archon as being already in existence when ENT takes place. They do not, OTOH, say anything about what the ship actually looks like. So they leave that wide open.

Re: Daedelus, ala April

I'll have to try that space bar and/or mouse button bit.

UPDATE: Didn't work.

Okay, this time it worked. In fact, I'm using right now. Thanks for the help, folks.

Apparently, there's a relatively steep learning curve on this puppy, so don't expect a lot of output from this side of the operation for a while yet.

At least the sucker works...
