I like it a lot
^ I was thinking that.
Can't wait for a full shot. Gah, such a tease.
hmm you have a point it does look like Gabe Enterprise. Is is fake or real .
Sweet! Looks pretty faithful.
So...those spinning things under the domes are finally revealed...
The font looks slightly different, but almost the same. It does seem a little misplaced, but that might just be for the shot. Anyway, looking good!
Hmmm, I'm thinking we've got 1 of 2 possibilities (right now): 1 those are the inner workings of the bussards without the outer "cowling" covering them. OR, the bussard's trademark swirl and glow comes from some form of energy reaction
^^^ I'm thinking unfinished engine too, SeerSGB.
Here is the picture in its full 1828 x 778 size.
^and i'm thinking finished engine, they just wont put any caps on for another decade or so...after all the trial runs
I like what I see so far! It looks like it is pretty close to the original design.
Well, so far I'm not seeing a whole lotta "reboot" fodder in there. The nacelle front-ends look very much like you might imagine the insides of the original TOS ones might look like, I think.
What I DO notice... the font is different (it looks like Microgramma Extended, like in the films, not Machine Extended (a close match to the TOS font).
And the construction of the A/B/C-deck "superstructure" is recognizable but different. Is it just me, or is the topside "dome" too small to hold the bridge (and thus, the bridge must be a deck lower)?
After zooming in a bit on the nacelles, it does bear a striking resemblance to Gabe Koemer's design. If you'll notice, the nacelles in the picture have the same "hooded" front, similar sides, and fins on the back, just as Koemer's did.
Not saying it's identical, but it does appear similar in some respects.
I wonder how big the bridge is?
Looks great btw.
I knew it would be more like Gabes than the original or the refit and I am happy with that because I thought his looked great.
I just realised why the nacelles might rotate, they point down like a rocket for when the ship first takes off !
Is the bridge maybe located where those big windows (black open spots under the dome) are? We were told that the bridge itself was going to be expansive.
Dammit!! Beat me to it
I don't know... those nacelles look complete to me.
On the scientific judgement of my gut. We'll see, though...
Or the whole "rotating" nacelles thing comes from the bussard's spinning
I seriously think the bridge is now huge, look at the opening in the top - it looks like an enormous computer display on the back wall, im not sure what else it could be.
It seems that patchwork of different gray's on the hull plating serves as a link to the Connie Refits. I don't remember seeing that patchwork effect on the pre-Refit Connie, just a solid color through and through.
Looking at the starboard nacelle, one notices a kind of "ribbed" effect on the nacelle exterior. Possible that it's just missing some final outer hull covering, or is that possibly some field coil action?
And maybe i'm just confused, but that top bridge module strikes me as refit-ish. Other people seem to think otherwise so I guess I need to take a another good long look at Old Lady E from the TOS days.
MY GOD! Where's Abrams? I wanna hug Abrams!
