COOL New Enterprise revealed (Spoiler)

Spoilers: http://denofgeek.com/movies/144620/s..._reviewed.html

The new design: http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/1448..._revealed.html

I am getting less and less "impressed" with this each time I hear/see something new about it.

I having a hard time making sense of all these excerpted teases... I can't really tell if they make any connection to Kirk's later (canon) assignment to the Farragut or if they if they're just going to let a cadet begin assuming command of a starship.

Redesigning the ship is one thing (I guess most people would have guessed I'd say that ) but you have to do it tastefully. Gabe's and Madkoifish's redesigned Enterprises are tastefully done and you can at least identify with them and see elements of the original ship in them. There's nothing in that movie design that came from the original ship (except maybe the general design but even that has drastically changed.) The saucer is about straight out of TMP and the secondary hull and nacelles are just plain FUGLY and are like nothing done on any Trek.

NO! NO! NO,NONONONO!!!!!


WTF?!!?

NO!

With all of the other 'reimagined' versions out there, why did they go with 'that' design?!
Geeze, once again I have to say there are people here who have made ships better than that ...that... thing.

It looks like J.J. gave a piece of paper and some crayons to a very young child and said "here, draw me a picture of the Enterprise" and then used that as the base for the design. I'll say one thing for it, though, it fits with that FUGLY bridge set. They're both so unfreakingbelievably horrible that they have to go together.

It took me a while of thinking, and now I have a better handle on why I am torn over this model.

The execution is professional, I have no complaints about that.

My feeling is that it seems to represent several different designs kind of bashed together. The seemingly TOS saucer section doesn't really match the STNG secondary hull and the ENT nacelles.

Are they trying to appease the fans? or just be "cool" ? or something else?

It's kinda weird being jerked in several directions at once.

I'm trying to like it but I can't get past the "neck" or nacelle pylons. They're just fugly. Plus, the deflector dish is too far forward giving the front of the engineering hull a pregnant look. And there doesn't appear to be much room in the back for a shuttlebay. (I'm just glad that Tallguy over at 3DSciFi pointed out that the fugly thing on the side is in fact a shuttle, so that part actually makes more sense now.) The nacelles are actually kinda cool and the saucer is a basic TMP saucer. I just can't get past that engineering hull, it's all whacked out and that has nothing to do with how the original looked. And I even like redesigns, I just don't like this one.

I'm serious... I really don't like it.
Maybe it'll look good from some other angle but from this shot - No Sir, I don't like it.
I've seen two reimagined versions of the ship online that smoke this 'official' one.

One them is found right here!

For the first time in a Trek movie I'll be hoping there is a scene where it gets blown to bits.

Yah, that is a beautiful mesh as well.
Either of these ships would have worked much better (IMO) than the one they're going to use.

Oh well, that's why they get paid the big bucks and I don't.

I'm sure this is nowhere near being official (that crap we've already seen probably is, unless that was an earlier version and they're frakking with us) but someone posted this not-too-hateful revision at the Phase II forums. The engineering hull has been beefed up and doesn't stick out so far forward, plus it has proper stripes and red bussards. This is a model I wouldn't mind seeing in the movie. It's a lot better than the "official" release photo, IMO.

With the bussards being red the nacells have the look like the rear end of some sort of 52 plymouth or something.

Like one of those cars you see in the family photo album from the mid 50s.

So I guess they were going for a retro-car look?
I saw on one post somebody called it the 'Edsleprise' and had little thumbnail images of how this part and that part looked like old cars. I'm not sure if it was funny or sad but it seemed like they were on to something.
