    Sorry if this has been discussed already but I thought I would share what appears to be test footage of the Discovery before the redesign.

    It was posted a few weeks ago, but deleted by the mods because it might be stolen footage.

    Well I certainly would not condone theft. If that is the case I am surprised that CBS has not reported the videos on YouTube. It has been over two weeks now. I am sure that if they were of the current version of the Discovery they would have been taken offline within seconds.

    I like that design better than the finished product.

    I agree - they should have kept it looking more like that instead of the long spindly nacelles and odd openings in the primary hull.

    I did mention these a few weeks ago but resisted posting them because of the people involved and the possibility they were "stolen". Anybody who was interested probably looked them up.

    I do prefer the nacelles raised, But I'm cool with the Discovery we've got. It takes balls to make the nacelles that crazy long!

    Nah...BOTH versions of Discovery look worlds better than the Abramsprise (IMO)

    Agreed. I love the Abrams films, but the nuEnterprise is crap.

    Awesome. I really don't, though. It looks like one guy designed the saucer, another guy designed the secondary hull, and yet another guy designed the engines, without input from any of the other guys. (Yes, I'm aware this is not the case, as Ryan Church designed the entire ship. But that's what it looks like to me.)

    The Enterprise-A is an awesome design and I really want a fourth movie to show it off properly.

    Pegg already said ripples went backwards as well as forwards (hence the Franklin fitting in better with the new designs, and IRL tachyons do decay into alpha and beta tachy-somethings that go forwards and backwards in time carrying information both ways).

    So we're going to see the aesthetic of the old Prime ships being overwritten. Or the ripples from First Contact going forwards, or both meeting in the middle.

    You know what I mean.

    I'm the other way around. The ship in that testfootage screams 'play it safe' to me, while the re-design actually shows some daring and new thoughts while still sticking to classis Starfleet ships design.
