    I completely agree with you. Well said.

    No, this isn't a 'mirror universe' Plum, I do 100% agree with you. :D

    I had noticed the subtle curving of the TOS/TMP saucer was missing from the Kelvin pics, so this flatness carries onto the top of the saucer too, I reckon. This part of the saucer design survived right through from the original Matt Jeffries design to the TMP era. And as someone who drew the big E a lot, that aspect of the ship was always hell, HELL, to get right proportionally. Even doing it in CG is a huge pain (I gave up). It's a part of the design I have the hardest time accepting, funny enough. And funny it isn't the rather Ford muscle car nacelle astetic.

    Can one of you geniuses do a swept pylon image on photoshop just to show how much better it would be?

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's a full body photoshop of the ship, with shuttles removed:

    And one with the engineering hull pushed back a bit like my earlier image:

    Indeed. From some angles, 1701-D is the most beautiful ship I've ever seen. But from others, like the intro of Encounter at Farpoint, EWW (sorry Mr. Probert;))!

    LOL sir, LOL:techman:

    I think the ship looks great. The old design would be laughable by today's movie standards. Hopefully everything will be updated accordingly to make this a great Star Trek movie that people can relate to and be inspired by.

    I'm a little taken aback, but I'll get over it.

    I think she'd look better though without the bumped-out sections at the nacelle / pylon connection:

    I would rather see Gabe's design in the new film, just with the lighter grey hull.

    So what "Not-Quite-Enterprise" name will this one get?

    The Chevyprise?

    Is that the registry on the bottom of the ship just below the deflector? Seems an odd place to put it.

    Yes, and it almost looks as if the dish is retractable. Extend it to give it a TOS look and retract it to give it a TMP look.

    Since this Enterprise is going to be raping our childhood...it's going to be on top, so the ID on the bottom is the best place to see it.

    I don't think they have a chrome cover, I just think they aren't "lit up" in this shot.
