    For me it's the enterprise E

    Bad nacelles, dab phaser arrangement in the saucer section, and i don't like the top of the saucer section (firt 5 deck shape)

    Right here buddy.
    The NX-01 didn't feel like an Enterprise to me. The lack of shielding and a tractor beam for so long (the Grapplers were super ugly), and the fact that it's just an upside-down Akira class killed it for me.

    Unfortunately "Enterprise C" doesn't indicate whether its the original Ambassador Class designed by Andrew Probert (displayed by the wall sculpture of the conference lounge in TNG's first seasons) or the Ambassador Class designed by Rick Sternback and built by Greg Jein (the VFX model).

    I presume the poll refers to the Enterprise-C VFX model, but given the uncertainty I used my vote for another IMHO not-so-great-looking design (since I absolutely adore Probert's take on the Enterprise-C).

    It was a tough call. I hate the NX-Class design, but I had to vote for the JJprise. Its too much of a 'super ship', travels anywhere in seconds, a massive array of weapons, does anything and everything, but still manages to get its ass handed to it.

    NX, becauseit lacks the sleekness and polish of the later ones.

    The Enterprise B. Every other Enterprise has her charm for me, except her.

    The D, the saucer is too big, the entire ship looks unbalanced and I was never a fan of the fat look. If you want the saucer to be an oval, make it longer rather than wider like the E or Voyager.

    Enterprise-J. It was originally just a quickly stretched out and elongated version of the NX-01 and another design never seen onscreen (after the episode it appeared in aired, Doug Drexler later went back and cleaned up the design, giving it more detail).

    I voted the NX-01. I actually think that I like the look of the JJverse Enterprise the best. The naselles are maybe a bit too large, but overall, it's a very sleek looking design.

    Ugliest for me is the -D. It looks like a squashed pleasure yacht spammed with windows. The -C comes in second, it just looks like an awkward, misproportioned mashup of the -A and the -D.

    It's obviously going to mean the one seen on-screen, the canon design. I doubt most fans are even aware there was a different early concept design or that Tobias Richter built a CG version of it.

    I'm so glad they ditched that one in favour of the on screen Ambassador-Class, its a far better looking ship than the concept version.

    For me the ugliest (by far) is the JJprise because it looks so disproportioned

    More to the point, the thing is a butt-ugly mishmosh of bad proportions and exaggerated shapes. To paraphrase David Mamet's State and Main, it looks as if Harley J. Earl puked and that puke designed the JJprise.

    The D. Looks bloated and unbalanced.

    I voted for C just because nobody else did so far. But I hate them all.

    Enterprise-F?

    I think the OP meant Enterprise-E.
