    "and fins at the back of the nacelles MORE prominent"...!!!??
    and if they painted it pink it'd be a '59 caddy....

    Wow.

    Cool, I never did like the idea that they actually refit the ship in TMP. With a Koernerprise-esque design, now we can all just dismiss that it wasn't basically the same design from the day Kirk took command until ST:VI.

    Dang, you busted us... the Enterprise seen in the trailer isn't actually the one that'll be seen in the film. In point of fact, it actually will look like a '59 Caddy... but we're only baiting the fans into theaters, we're really trying hard to sell this project to everyone else, and... well... no one else really cares, it's just a spaceship. We'll show a lot of cleavage and blow a bunch of stuff up, it'll be hip and trendy.

    Except that they specifically said that the ship had been refit in TMP and that whole scene where Kirk approaches the Enterprise and marvels at the new look of the ship is one of the best scenes in the film. So, the ship was refit regardless. I think the way the Enterprise looks in the new enhanced TOS episodes, the Enterprise Mirror Universe, and DS9's Trials and Tibbilations shows that the original constitution design can be pulled off just fine.

    However, As for Gabe's Enterprise - since STXI seems at least to be a *visual* reboot (new actors), then I'd be happy with a version like his. In fact, I love Gabe's model so much that I'm probably going to be disappointed in what they actually have in the film, unless it is a true perfect original Constitution. But the proportions of the nacelles and typeface on the ship shown in the preview already exclude that I think.
