    I agree. Everything should do what he likes to, and it's actually pretty great for people that do invest the time to actually show off their work!

    That being said, I have noticed that - especially as far as fan re-vamps of the original Enterprise are concerned - pretty much 90% of all of them fall into the same traps: TNG-era, dark grey hull plating, the refit-like widening pylons, added blue lighning stripes on the nacelles. And specifically most of them flaten the elegant lines and curves of the ship, to more straight curves or angles. Gone is the sinus-shape, in favour of a boring straight up ramp. And all of them thicken the neck, add that redit-style photon torpedo launcher, and get rid of the iconic neck shape that widens up from top to bottom.

    And blody hell - the Disco-prise uses literally almost ALL of these useless updates! All of which don't really add anything to the original design - the only thing they do, is nudge it closer to the look of the starships of later Trek series. That's really disappointing.

    Something or someone doesn't have to be perfect to be loved, IMO.

    Why does any of that need to be undone? They don’t contradict anything.

    Fair enough....I guess I'm one of those who find something to like, most of the time. :D

    Nor does treating something with a critical eye means it is hated.

    I'm sure they have a bunch of Kirk statues just a few years later.

    And they will be torn down a few decades later when all the Picard statues are erected.

    All they've done with the Enterprise in this series is nudge it closer to the TMP Enterprise, which makes perfect sense all things considered. A refit doesn't completely reshape a vessel.

    If the Klingon War were erased from the timeline I wouldn't miss it at all. L'Rell and Voq/Ash can still exist without the war as a narrative background and with Trek time travel mumbo jumbo they wouldn't change whatsoever and still retain their current positions as Chancellor and Section 31 operative.

    You maniacs. You went and built statues of Connolly.

    It's easier to see under this light the orange cast of "Enterprise Red."

    It's when a lot of posts center around criticism that it comes across as hatred.

    Even if that were true, there'd be nothing objectionable about it.

    Hate a TV show? Heaven forbid. Next someone will be hating on broccoli, or calamari, or pumpkin spice lattes and where will that lead?

    Best get the kids inside, Ma.

    Did I say objectionable?

    It's just highly confusing.

    The rest is just hyperbole.

    Um, yes...I wasn't aware that would, um, be confusing. :shrug:
