There goes my wallet.............
In the trailer we can see that it's a combination: big blurry blue stripes! So big blurry blue as in new Trek, but still stripes as in old Trek
I always hated the "streaking stars" of TNG/LDS/Orville. Stars are massive and distant, yet they passed like tiny dust motes between the camera and ship sometimes. This also infuriated me in ENT when "stars" would appear like snowflakes in a breeze at impulse speeds.
Thus the Star Wars/Stargate hyperspace tunnel is an infinitely large upgrade, IMHO.
Same here. Very confusing from a visual standpoint.
Then obviously what we're seeing aren't actually stars. Particles of the interstellar medium or incident photons from distant stars interacting with the warp field perhaps? We already know that warp speeds are nowhere near fast enough for real stars to actually seem to be moving like that anyway.
If they're keeping STO's length for the Odyssey (and I think they are based on that one shot in the trailer), this is how it looks side by side with the sovereign.
That is a big fucking ship
Does it have impulse engines in the pylons in STO?
But it looks like the remodel (which Picard is using) might be getting rid of them.
Perhaps only to be used when the ship is separated
I hope we see all kinds of angles, flybys, closeups of her
According to the VFX Supervisor they didn't make the model 'hero ship' quality, they used the STO model straight up, so it won't be as high quality as the Titan or other ships that will receive close ups.
Fly bys like in the trailer most likely.
This image by Enethrin on DeviantArt really shows one of the big problems I have with the Odyssey-class design... its stupid fat wedge-shaped saucer. I honestly think it would look much better with a more classically shaped saucer as with this redesign.
Those big banana nacelles, though, are beyond help
Doesn't STO have at least 5 different, and very different looking, subclasses for the Odyssey?
Yes, and like all ships in STO, you can kitbash them with the others in their type.
That's one of the pics I've seen, but I wasn't 100% sure if it was "official". Tho that seems like 3-5 different classes.
I don't mind the Endeavor and the Sojourner
Nacelles on the Endeavour also aren't that far off of the ones seen on ships in Picard, like the Stargazer.
Terry on the Ent-F again
Separate names with a comma.
