    Oh, you're absolutely right it is anything but nice to do that! But then again, I'm not buying a product of these people. Stooping down to their level is not a good idea for anyone.

    But I have to admit: I also think this design is crap. In the end, it's not the make-or-break point of the series. And I really don't want to hurt John Eaves, because, as I said, this guy is a genius. But this product of him? Eh.. Not good. Every great artist has one or two absolute stinkers on his resumé. It's just a little unfortunate that happened to the main ship of a new series. Even if he personally really isn't responsible for it, he has to live with the critique.

    (Also, and just a side note: I really don't think John Eaves crossed any line, or acted in any way inappropriete. What he did was very human and comprehensibly, and he was very mannered about it. No comparison to the "real" lash-out at fans of Bob Orci or anything. This whole situation with him, a great guy, a not so great design, and the back and forth on a facebook-page is more saddening than anything else. I still love this guy unequivocally!)

    Love the design work done for the Discovery. Looking forward to seeing her in action.

    But they flipped it instead of rotating it so the registry is backwards :lol:

    And an Engineer and a Lieutenant judging by the badge and uniform colouring.-

    ...Isn't it nice that Data was never said to be the first sapient android in the Federation or in Starfleet, just the only one extant as of the time of VOY "Prototype" and the first to use a positronic brain? :devil:

    I hope it looks better in the series than in that still. Looks like something out of Red Dwarf, and that was done on a BBC budget in the '80s.

    And perhaps a smooth skullcap to cover that transparent cranium so that fellow crew doesn't get disturbed by the sight of the gooey brain. We don't know what Gallamites really look like, now do we? (Or, rather, now we do.)

    For me it'll probably be like how I fell about Galaxy class. I'll simply learn to tolerate it.

    Honestly I prefer all the other federation ships we've seen so far.

    I think I can tolerate the Discovery far more than many of the TNG era ships.
