    The NX-01 Refit is neither logical, nor appealing.

    We're shoving in a second hull (from where?) to the NX design to make it look topheavy and redudant with a new deflector dish AND the mouthpiece dish, no new shuttlebay, and making a double-hulled ship a hundred years before the connie, again, out of nowhere.

    The only pass I can see is if the Daedalus was ever introduced into the show and they put two and two together, but it never came to be.

    As it stands, the 'Saucer' shape evolved out of triangular designs to a semi-circle to a full saucer; and the big spherical ships are still mostly non-canon save for a few designs on desks.

    The secondary hull basically just appears with the Kelvin and it's already 'mature' then (deflector dish in front, shuttle bay in back, conical shape, overhang), and the shows are not going to answer the question of lineage anytime soon because it's just not important to them.

    Overall I admit - it's a minor thing, but damn is it grating to me.

    Edit: this might be much more unpopular and relevant:

    I don't like the Connie Refit or the Excelsior class aesthetically.

    Here's a couple of unpopular opinions I don't think I've mentioned in this thread before:

    -I don't like the look of the Voyager very much. It always looked like a shoehorn or a garden spade.

    -While I usually love Jerry Goldsmith's music (His TMP and Planet of the Apes scores are amazing), I've never cared for the VOY theme. It's not heroic or majestic like the TMP/TNG theme, and it never really seems like it gets going. It's just kind of... there.

    I don't like the Intrepid-class design either. It just looks completely generic and uninteresting.

    As much as I like the Sovereign-class design, I hate that it started a trend of eliminating the saucer/neck/stardive designs in Star Trek.

    Here's my unpopular Trek opinion.

    Star Trek Into Darkness was actually really good.

    I've always said that it was a really fun, entertaining movie until the split-second before Spock does the "Khan" yell. Then it becomes, quite literally, unwatchable for me. Like, it gives me a headache it's so bad. So I'm not sure how I feel about it as an overall film. I love about 3/4 of it, and then I detest the last 1/4 (except the epilogue that takes place a year later).

    There's also pieces of the plot that make absolutely no sense, but I'm pretty forgiving of that.

    The Metron is not wearing a toga. Here is a link to a Wikipedia article about togas:

    I didn’t like it that much.

    It was too long, and had significant plot holes.

    Beyond was the best of the three Kelvin movies.

    I think the main issue with STID was that the constant TWOK references overshadowed a lot of the good stuff.

    Currently watching Season 7 of DS9 and I'm so freaking thankful that unlike TV Netflix has the option to skip through all those awful, superfluous Vic Fontaine scenes.
    That's one aspect of DS9 I never liked, the show's romance with the early 20th century.

    Ehhh...yes and no for me. On the one hand, yeah its referencing what is considered a far superior film. On the other hand, I'm fully invested in these characters, this relationship, and (aside from the "Khan" yell) I'm not thinking about another film when I'm that engaged.

    That’s fair. I just feel like I and a lot of other fans might have been kinder to it at first if they’d downplayed the Khan references a bit.

    Spock yelling "KHAN!!!!!" in Into Darkness was the best scene in the film.

    EDIT: April Fool's!
