    Great pics, thanks for posting!:techman:

    The more I see of theKelvin-A, the less I like her.... It's probably my least favourite take on the original connie, after the TOS one, the movie refit, the JJprise and the Discoprise - which I ALL like or love - this is the single one I don't like.

    At least it's size is consistent (and not a weird mish-mash like on the JJprise). But it's waaaay to big for an exploraion vessel. If such a giant ship would suddenly appear in your orbit, you'd think less "first contact", and more about "Independence Day".
    (sorry/not sorry re: size discussion:guffaw:)

    I dunno.... In those constructions shots, the first angle is very nice. The second one, a bit clunky, even taking into account that the ship is ofcourse not completed. I think I do prefer the Beyond version of the Kelvin-universe Connie more. As for all of them, like you said..... Probably the TMP Refit the most, with, dare I say it..... The Disco-version in second place.

    Kind of amazed we're actually gonna see this baby fly in a couple of years. I'd given up hope.

    Can't wait to see it either. I'm sure the design will be tweaked somehow in ST4/14 lol

    Can't wait to see the interiors. Hopefully a change there

    Since we have yet to see an interior of the 1701-A, I designed one myself.

    I've found these. Can't remember where:

    FWIW. I'm not a big fan of any of them going back to 2009, to be honest.

    It certainly looks odd in profile, but for most angles the Beyond-1701 looks beautiful. Those scenes where she flies into the nebula...

    I don't believe these are official. They look to be the work of Tobias Richter, who also made unofficial renders of the Kelvin and her kitbashed brethren.

    Such a shame we'll likely never see her in action :(

    Thanks for the clarification. These are fantastic renders and probably 99% accurate to the originals, which are probably long gone by this point.

    Long gone? Important movie assets (Enterprise CG studio models) are saved and backed up. I know for a fact the original CG studio models of the 1701 and 1701-A still exist. I know because...well, reasons...
