    Who said that every part of the NX-01 was built in space? All we know is that, like the 1701(r), we see the final touches being applied in space. I don't recall anyplace in that series that stated that the nacelles were built from scratch in orbit, or that the main bulk of the saucer may not have been built planetside and lifted into orbit. We only know, really, that when Archer and Trip were flying around the ship before launch day, when it was nearly completed, it was in space.

    That's not really evidence of anything. ;)

    This looks really cool. Unless the rest of the ship looks like the back end of a Prius, Messrs. Church and Eaves seem to have put a handsome spin on the design.

    Plum -- I agree. Are we the only ones seeing the domed-nacelle covers? Like I said before, they are dark in that photo. Once they are lit, it will be easier to see the dome covering the moving "blades".

    Nah, it's right there on the PPC backlot, right next to the giant Cow Buddha statue.

    (See, >I< GET the "call shenanigans" reference... ;) )

    Yes, well, I don't think the dome is dark (no reflections), just missing.

    The problem right now is I'm going to have to wait too long to see more... gah, I really need that teaser trailer!

    Anyway, got the Enterprise on my desktop now. Stunning!

    This was based more on seeing the skeleton of Columbia in spacedock in the 2nd season final episode 'The Expanse'. Again, perhaps new stonger antigrav technology or sometype of new tractor beam exists to lift the Conny to a spacedock to complete construction 80-90 years after 'Enterprise'. Or other ships just pull it up there like we have helicopters carry things today.

    Me too! I love space ship construction pictures.

    Anyone else besides me humming the motion picture theme when Kirk sees the enterprise?

    Looks about like I expected. Too much TMP and not enough TOS for my taste.

    But . . . it doesn't suck and if this is the direction things take overall, I'll be happy.

    One thing to bear in mind, too... The Enterprise was launched many years before we ever saw her... under the command of a guy named April. So, if we're seeing her as CONSTRUCTED... who's to say that that's not how she really started out, but didn't get refit later on into what we know?

    It's more information than we had, but it's not YET conclusively contradictory of anything.

    I'm blown away. It looks fantastic. :thumbsup:

    Am I the only one that can't wait until they have a toy version to zoom around their living room? :lol:

    Someone's going to have to dig up a still, but IIRC Columbia had huge holes in its hull while under construction, which isn't consistent with building the hull planetside. Wouldn't you seal the hull before orbiting it?

    Edit: shoulda read FleetLord's post before replying.
