Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

The only thing that slightly annoyed me about the Kelvin was that the bridge windows are so oversized compared to the tiny saucer windows at the back.
Then i saw that only the middle bridge window was the 3 bridge windows (freeze-frame a hi-def trailer) and all was good again.

I like how it looks kinda rubbish. If only Enterprise had taken that route instead of making the ship look badass.

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

Sadly, the Kelvin is more badass than the revised Enterprise...Robau or NOT.

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

I was referring to how the NX-01 looked more advanced whereas the Kelvin looks more believable as an early Starfleet/Earth vessel.

More advanced in what way? What can we tell about the technology used by the shape of the hull?

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

I like both Kelvin and Enterprise designs. Kelvin is your reliable tricked-out Honda Civic customized with a supercharger and chrome exhausts, carbon-fiber hood and suicide doors; Enterprise is your Ferrari, mouth watering fresh from the factory.

Don't make me choose. They're BOTH so awesome.

Kelvin has those vinyl flaps hanging on the hatch doorway. Those were cool; nobody else has those.

And the shower curtains in the shuttlecraft.

Those things kicked ass for some reason I can't quite put my finger on.

He may consider sparing you. Just to be sure you should suck-up more.

Looked more advanced. Nothing to do with the 'technology'.

In what way? what made it look more advanced? The shape? Texture? Design?
