You sure are putting a visible amount of effort into something you claim not to care about.
I promise not to turn that into a trend.
It's not that they're square or rectangular in shape. It's that so many of the ones in DSC are, well, kinda ugly. Or really ugly.
In other words, posting on the TrekBBS.
Well, so is the Galaxy class.
I actually really love the long, lean nacelles of the Crossfield-class. It (and some of the other design choices) gives the design a distinctive look that was needed for a new Star Trek hero ship.
Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Actually, most of Star Trek's hero ships are beautiful designs to me. The only exceptions are the Voyager and the Defiant...and I give the latter a pass because it was not meant to be a sexy design.
But all the versions of the Enterprise (NX through E) have their own special beauty...as does the Discovery.
Im not a fan of the Kelvinverse Enterprise, but I certainly don't dislike it either. I think the only design that really doesn't sit with me is the Voyager.
The D and the C were not a favorite of mine, but I can appreciate some facets. The Defiant I agree is ugly on purpose but I always liked the Intrepid design. Also, absolutely love Kelvin Enterprise.
But, I really like the Discovery starships presented, including the Enterprise, aside from some minor details.
According to Eaves, the flatness of Voyager is why he made the Enterprise-E flat.
Also according to him, the big design difference between the -D and -E came as a request from the producers.
Can't believe he would listen to the producer's request. He should
be following what Starfleet engineers say!
Everyone knows that productions don't listen to technical advisers.
The ships were flat because flatter models were easier to film.
Finally, an Eaves statement that I actually believe.
Yep. Honestly, most warp nacelles after TOS and TMP are inferior to the ones in that series and the first six films. But these new ones in DSC are in a class by themselves.
HOLD UP ONE MINUTE. My Making of First Contact book says the similarities between Voyager and the E-E were entirely fluke, and Eaves hadn't even seen Voyager.
HaVE wE bEEn LIed tO???
I misread a line on memory-alpha
the promo after "the escape artist" included an updated shot from an earlier trailer, now the enterprise is being towed by two (malachowski class?) ships:
Who's to say it's not taken from later in the same episode?
