    Eh. I'm gonna have to call a big "No" on that observation. The hull plates and components appear to have tiny little lights or glowing elements embedded in them.

    If those are reflections where is Boreth's reflection in the hull? Or Discovery's? Those are some kind of tiny little glowy bits.

    Unless the other one is swept forward (which would be cool!), no.

    TAS actually had some gorgeous depictions of the NCC-1701 and in a few cases some of the best we ever saw. The limitations of live-action special effects in the mid-to-late 1960s were clearly not an issue for television animation artists in the early 1970s.

    I’ve always had a fondness for the three-foot model.

    That Filmation rotoscoped this shot from the original series’ pilot main title made me really happy.

    That, too, looks better than what we got.

    It's a drydock. What we got was sort of a cross between the one from ENT and the one from TMP, so it fits.

    Eh. If it was the TOS set designers did a better job of hiding it than a Romulan cloaking device could. ;)

    Very nice!
    I didn't mind the TMP throwback-one they had on the show. But this curved one looks IMO more interesting.

    "The USS Enterprise NCC-1701 received some temporary modifications while under the command of Captain Christopher Pike..."

    The idea that they changed after "The Cage" for Disco (making it bigger and totally changing the proportions) then changed it back for TOS proper is one of the stupidest things I've read in a Star Trek book.

    Nice Fact-Files-style bridge cutaway, but they botched having the window in front as a viewscreen when it's a window.

    I wouldn’t take the refit to mean a believable way of reshaping the literal TOS-R digital model into the DSC model and back, only that if we were to see the Enterprise in 2254 or 2265, the DSC model would be edited into one closer to the TOS-R version, but it would still be “recast”.

    You've gotta buy the book for that:lol:
    That's would work in a meta sense, but this is a technical book. Eaglemoss have shown the versions of the ship side-by-side in some instances.

    I feel sorry for their writers. They're trying.

    Side-by-side at 289 and 442 meters?

    I got no problem with it. I think the Discoprise is a beautiful update for a 50 year old make believe star ship. While the Matt Jefferies TOS was an elegant and ground breaking ship design, one worthy of being in the Smithsonian......it needed a facelift. I don't need in universe reasons that it looks and measures differently. I know it ain't real. Just give me good stories and a Pike show...........
