Holy ****, that looks good. I don't like the way it curves back toward the shuttle bay doors, but that is a HOT looking ship. ****ing HOT.

[quote=Starship Polaris;2280851]

Holy cats! Very radical design (I assume you'd have the sheit Starship P., and thanx!). Has a futuristic retro style with it's sleek form but offset with technical detail. Notice the photon-torpedo tube mount as from the TMP design.

Something in me wonders if Scotty didn't ask someone to 'pimp my starship'!

The nacelles are the most daring part here, if the lower 'engineering section' getting flattened and smoothed isn't. The nacelles give a huge new feel to the ship, rather like most other new designs for starships always seemed to not want to mess with the saucer.

Do I like it? It's great and seems to fit the design styles the film seems to be going for... futuristic and retro but not a campy retro. It follows some of the most modern designs we see in vehicle design, architecture (especially the silver, shiny, skin), and so on. It might not appeal to the fanboy set but personally I find this design to be wonderfully contemporary, sophisticated and appealing to todays eyes. Well done I say!

This'll spark a whole new round of "reboot" panic.

Not the first time the Enterprise has been through a drastic change though.

Ok so why isn't there a 3D render of this ship yet? I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED PEOPLE!

That said, I like the design. I can get behind this. Now, I want to see it in action.

I agree. Though I never had a problem with the new bridge in the first place, it does make a lot more sense now that we know what the ship looks like.

AWESOME!

At first I was a little thrown off because I didn't realize that was a shuttle covering the front the forward drive section until I took a closer look.

Now I want MORE!

Between this and his obvious displeasure at the outcome of the recent election, I think Captain Robert April's head is likely to explode when he sees this.

I kid the Captain, but I don't think he'll like this one bit.

It has been said, but I am saying it again. I don't like the nacelles.

Other than that it is tolerable.

It'd be nice if we could eventually get 4-view shots of it. At that angle, it's hard to gauge the total length and positioning of the nacelles, for example.

The front of the nacelles look as though they contain security cameras.

It's a Connie... sort of.

I'd say most casual observers would say it's the same ship as the one from the movie eras.

Given that, I'd say all told the filmmakers seem to be staying faithful where they ABSOLUTELY need to stay faithful, and taking liberties where they can.
