    Shouldn't make any difference anyway, since the crew expansion seems to have taken place by 2257—at least on some ships—per "Obsession" (TOS). All we would have to reason is that it occurred after "The Cage" (2254) and prior to DSC (2256 presently). Likewise, if they did have a Connie with the smaller complement, we could just say that while some ships were already getting the increase, it took longer for others (or indeed, that it was never made uniform across all of them).

    No damage to the ship herself in "Obsession" (TOS), despite the creature having free roam through the ventilation system. No mention of Farragut's XO being injured or Kirk taking command, either. Don't know where that's from, but it's not in the episode.

    (Still, as I said above, it's not implausible that if half the crew including the captain were suddenly killed, things could have gone awry to the point where there ended up being damage as a secondary result.)

    No need to bring up Constitution class crew complement.
    No need to change or update it, as if it were"necessary" it would have been done in IAMD, both parts.

    It wasn’t necessary because it was a homage.

    DSC isn’t an homage. It takes place in that time period.

    The rust ring doesn't spin.

    Vektor's is the absolute best without really changing anything, just with better detailing. Maybe with obvious aztec-ing.

    That said, I like the other ones shown here too. They aren't too far away from the original ala: the Kelvin-prise.

    I like Vektor's version of the TOS ship a great deal. I like Gabe's work in general, but his Enterprise is not my favorite...it's rather clumsy.

    Its the struts and neck I don't like on the original Connie, they seem too simple compared to other ships in the universe.

    Yeah, one of the things that Andy Probert brought to the TMP redesign was more of a blend between the major parts and shapes of the Jefferies "Phase II" revisions.

    Many CG Connies on animation sites. Use the one in IAMD with the Enterprise name and NCC number.

    Maybe we see a connie in the season finale or in the 2. season.

    I've had that top picture as my desktop background for ages. Though I did Photoshop the nacel domes to have the series style lights.

    I speculate that if there was a crew transfer in deep spaces, a Connie might be seen?

    ^ A distinct possibility...

    And I'd like to see a character refer to the class (in-universe) as a "Connie" just to mess with people's heads. :lol:

    To me it looks like a brutalist-style building with 1930s skyscraper roof domes on the nacelles.
