Yeah. Everyone knows the NX-01 would be accepted if the writing was good.
Every bit of this.
I didn’t say it would be accepted. I said that it wouldn’t ‘fuck up’ the show. ENT didn’t fail because of the design of the ship.
Besides, didn't you mean the TOS-style Defiant and not the NX-class design?
A little like the Axiom
I love John Berkey spaceships
Well, I'm pretty sure it "fucked up " the show, and would have even if it was good.
I’m struggling to make sense of that statement. You seriously think the design of the NX-01 was the reason why ENT wasn’t a good show? I don’t like the design either, but I’m not that daft to think that was the reason why ENT failed.
If they'd made it a spherical primary hull and more like a Daedalus-class starship the "not cool enough" kids would have been setting fires to protest the series betraying 2001 audiences with an archaic design. The NX-01 is fine. It's not precisely how I'd have designed it but it's more than adequate.
I can see a line drawing of it with the plates in a revised Sternbach Chronology in my minds' eye
Not that. That even if the series was considered "good" the ship would be a "fuck up."
But that's not what you said.
Ah, I see what I did. I misspoke. Apologies.
I admit, I've always found Fuller's directive that DIS ships couldn't have round nacelles to be rather odd. Was there ever any specific context for that decision, or was it mainly just a personal opinion of his? I'm genuinely curious.
I think it was just his personal tastes just to shake things up for the sake of shaking things up.
That was my impression as well. The unnecessarily strange and distracting look of the Klingons and their ships were other Fuller brain-children, stemming from a similar requirement of change for the sake of change.
No in-universe logic, just...he was the showrunner so he did it because he could.
Nope. Just variety.
I would have liked them as Hur’q vessels
John Eaves tried to head-canon it as being necessary for whatever this new drive was.
He wasn't given full plot details when designing the ships, all he knew was there was a new experimental drive of some sort, so he had to come up with his own reasons why things looked the way they did.
not really the only thing it proved is that the 1966 stuff is outdated and goofy and shouldn't be part of a modern production but obviously we're not going to agree with this lol
