I'm torn on this. Ordinarily, if we were talking about producing a highly accurate reproduction of the original original Enterprise, I would pick the opaque version without hesitation. But since I understand this endeavor is supposed to provide an alternative to the JJprise, I would pick the clearer version because it shows more "guts". Of course, if I were making an alternative to the JJprise (assuming I had the 3D skills, which I clearly do not posses), I would take a different approach to the front nacelle caps. Instead of huge fan blades in front of a brightly lighted nacelle interior, I'd have the blades themselves emitting bright, colorful lights. And I would make the effect even more interesting by separating an "outer ring" of bright blades, perhaps rotating clockwise, from a "core ring" of blades, rotating counter-clockwise. This would make for a much more interesting effect. One can dream, eh?
