    Yes, yes it is. I've done for decades now.
    So, Star Trek.

    I wouldn't have cared all that much if they showed some DSC ships, but I agree that it would have been pointless to show a Discoprise.

    I really didn't expect that they will use TOS Connie, but when they did it that could look more like TOS Connie this fas has made. Better lightning, more details. To look more realistic in 4k and 1080p. This guy did it perfectly.

    This is such a strange take.

    They obviously care, arguably to an excessive extent. The museum didn't just happen to be there, they wrote it in. They picked the ships to put it it.

    If they weren't "allowed" to use the original Connie, it wouldn't be there. Therefore, whichever elusive authority you are talking about is very comfortable with both the old and new designs coexisting.

    coming to read the thread for nerdy trivia about spaceships and such, reading about death threats, running away.

    If you’re interested enough to point out plot holes, you’re interested enough to come up with reasons or ways they wouldn’t be holes.

    Sorry, I love the TOS Enterprise in every possible way, but she sticks out like a sore thumb in that clip. No matter how you light it, no matter what resolution you show it in, it looks like something designed in the 60's.

    Great for a nostalgia moment, but that nostalgia will eventually wear itself out.

    That IS the Constitution class.
    She’s back.

    I wasn't aware she ever left.

    Nor was I. We've now seen the DSC, TOS and TMP designs in various PIC episodes, so all of them are still official to me.

    She did in the season 1 finale of DSC and remains AWOL in SNW.

    I dunno, maybe I'm just biased these days because of how much I loved the NX-01 and how well the "Discoprise" fits in with the lineage.

    *Guess I should update this with the NX-01 Refit.

    Do we actually know it's a refit of the NX-01? It's certainly an NX class, but could it be the Columbia or some other NX we haven't previously seen before?

    Pretty sure Lord Terry said it was the Enterprise on Twitter.

    It's not that good, sorry. And the "let's blow up Discovery " is a moronic old joke. Lamers were using it in 2009 against Church's design.


    The Enterprise in SNW is Constitution class, too.

    :guffaw:

    Nope.

    If you can accept the Enterprise in TMP is the same ship as the one in TOS, then surely you can accept the Enterprise in SNW is the same ship :shrug: :rolleyes:

    Which, to be fair, is rather more than the TOS Enterprise's dedication plaque confirms...;)

    There was a design by Doug Schramm from ~2009 showing an "NX-ified" version of the original Constitution-class. I have to say the SNW version has some remarkable similarities.
