Ha, it is the NX refit!
And the new Eschelon class
What's the 4th and 5th?
Do the scales of the ships in the fleet museum seem off to anyone else? They're all about the same size, even the B'rel. That and the old Constitution should be much smaller, right?
Sad they did not show the original NX-01. Only the non-canon (until now) NX-01 refit.
The Bounty and the A seem to look right, Connie and Constie about the same size seems right, Akira and Nebula seem to have similar sizes as well. Maybe that Rommie BoP is too big.
The NX-01 Refit was actually made canon in season 2 of Picard.
is the Connie again. No idea what the 4th is
After all these years, the Akira still is one of the better-looking ships out there (IMO)! Love that design!
REFIT! Well Doug is the guy making the models, etc. and it is his baby. so.. SQUEEEE!!
Awesome to see the refit. Hopefully it's the NX-01.
Same. There are a lot of unused concept ships I'd love to see. Not to mention some designs seen in comics over the years.
Right? I keep wondering that too. Would love to see them again.
No B. Perhaps lost? No E, which I guess means we'll be finding out later on this season what happened to her.
It'll be a shame, nay, criminal, if they don't make an interactive SF Museum app or website so we can look at everything close-up. That's assuming they did all the ships up in HQ like the ones we did get good views of.
Why are all the engines turned on, even the impulse??
It's been a long time since anyone bothered with context-sensitive engine lighting on a Trek show. I'm just glad that, after the wide shot, apparently someone remembered the TMP Enterprise's warp engines only lit up when it was actually at warp.
The texturing of the New Jersey looked weird, but there's something familiar about it. I guess I've just seen that kind of chunky texturing used on TOS Constitutions in general. It doesn't quite match the model from the STID deleted scene, for instance, but there's a similar vibe. I'm surprised they didn't use the TOS-R model but... oh, duh. Where else would it have come from? I'm betting it's the STO model with some not-quite-right smoothing done on it that turned the polygons into visible plating.
They may not be. They could be simply light panels at this point, to show visitors what they looked like when they were full-powered.
True, After TWOK, they kind of forgot that the nav deflector on the Refit starts out as yellow, then goes to blue.
Excelsior nacelles DON'T light up. etc. yeah.
Haven't seen the episode yet, but it could be like the railroad museum where I'm a volunteer. The locomotives and rolling stock light up and all but aren't actually powered up - just have power run into those circuits from an electrical lead through the museum. The ships probably have some form of rig that illuminates what's needed without the main core being powered.
*starts looking up law firms*
That Saber class looks tiny.
If the U.S.S. New Jersey is what the SNW Enterprise looks like by the end of that series I'll be very pleased.
