The majority of Discovery ships.
I said 'what I would consider', you're not me.
I have but that is not something I hold against a show. If the show works then the ship can be ugly or whatever. If not, no good design will keep my interest.
It doesn't look like it belongs in the 25th century.
That kind of design aesthetic was abandoned by SF in the 23rd century.
Why no phaser strips?
It LITERALLY looks like a 23rd century ship with oversized (and quite frankly WHY so huge?) impulse engines.
It just looks like a poor attempt at a Constitution knock-off.
Ok. Take your word for it at this point. Agree to disagree, etc.
Bill posted a model of the Titan
"Shang II-class (Titan I) and the Shang III/Constitution III (Titan III) (B) in primer."
It has phaser strips, they're just not visible in the trailer, you can see them on a computer diagram Terry posted in January.
Looks like a Sovereign.
I'm guessing the Titan I will show up in the Conference room
Probably. They do like their models in conference rooms.
I find 99% all of Starfleet ships boring. The one exception? The Defiant (the Deep Space Nine, no I don't remember the registry number, no I don't care).
But that's fine. I'm not here for the ship designs.
I'm here for the stories and the characters.
It's my favourite ship and I can't even remember the tegistry number.
I can remember Voyager's though, probably because of the repeating numbers.
Yup. Ships in service to the characters not characters in service to the ships.
If it looks nice, that's a bonus. A small one.
If they named it.. Any other name... I would just say.. Cool.. But they named it Titan.. Ugh..
In Lower Decks, the only past Starfleet Titan before the Luna class was a FASA Loknar.
And I will remember the Titan.
What's wrong with Titan?
True. For 35 years nobody knew the existence of the NX-01, and then all of a sudden, there it was. And is.
I think I would have preferred this new ship to be the Enterprise-F.
We cannot say for certain that the NX-01 lasted longer then 10 years, even with the refit now entered into canon. "These are the voyages" didn't show a single external shot of the Enterprise until the very end of the episode where it was included in the montage of ships. For all we know, the scenes aboard the ship could have been the refit NX-01, we just didn't know it. The shot at the end simply showing the ship as we had known her.
Also, we just saw Child Picard playing with a model of an NX Refit. We've no indication that it was the NX-01. Indeed, in the novels the NX-01 was never refit, it's other NX class ships we see get refit. Granted, the Ships of the Line calendars do actually show the NX-01 as a refit.
