    Naah. You're just stupid.

    If we have a point of comparison, that is - one we can go back to for verification. Working in a dark room for, oh, an hour will already be plenty enough to completely skew our benchmark for "dark" or "bright". And to give us these vague headaches and just possibly the uneasy feeling that the light is "different".

    Transitioning from one level of brightness to another via a machine that literally turns you into a cloud of sparkles... might make the skewing happen faster. Generally, though, any distraction will do, because the eyes adapting is such an automatic thing. We might pay attention to it in circumstances where we consider it possible, but teleporting from Room A to Room A' is not the intuitively best case for that: the brain tends to reject the improbable.

    Those were also on the Adversaries CG model, same with the Torpedo Launchers.

    There are also 3 pair on the top of the saucer, but they are farther out from the bridge dome.
    There's also a definitive set of torpedo tubes just fore of the phaser banks to the front of the lower sensor dome.

    So it's hard to tell by that model whether the green section of the dome is a window or not.
    The white just below it I guess is supposed to be part of the self-illumination lights.

    With all the changes they made to get it looking more similar to TMP version, it's strange that they didn't include the docking ports on the sides of the secondary hull.
    Those at the very least would be the most logical thing to include.

    What are the two humps above the impulse engines for?

    The fins? John Eaves like fins, gets them from his like of airplanes.. They're on a few of his designs.

    They added a docking port between the impulse engines. Which seems dangerous IMO.

    It's a window, you can tell in the S2 trailer.

    I just wish at some point he would do an interview and explain why he adds things like that.
    I hope it something more than he thinks "it's cool looking'"...
    :rolleyes:

    If you squint really hard, it's almost acceptable.

    Yeah, I kinda-sorta assumed that they were going to do one, I was just wondering which subscription they were going to put it in.
    I only have the Discovery Subscription.
    (I've been picking up the ships I really like from their original Star Trek subscription, when I find them much cheaper online in other places)
    :cool:

    And these are supposed to be the ship's main tractor beam emitter and warp core ejection hatches, correct? It's been a while since I studied blueprint details of that section of the Enterprise. I do have a strong impression that the yellow circle is where the tractor beam emitter is supposed to be located.

    Not sure what your source is for that? They're not authoritative I know, but on the Franz Joseph plans the main tractor beam emitter is on the bottom but it is farther towards the bow, almost at the main sensor/navigational deflector dish.

    Here's a photo that popped up on twitter of an early build of the DSC-E.

    Re: Eaglemoss

    The XL edition is part of the regular Starships line.

    The average-size model is part of the DSC sub.

    Yeah I agree, Eaves did say that was something the show VFX team changed.

    More pictures here

    One of the designs has the “balls” at the ends of the nacelles like later TOS, but also turned inwards like his NX-01 concept art
