New Enterprise...
 
From the shape of the nacelles - do you think it will look like the "modernized" pics I've seen in the fan art thread?

there have been several sources saying the ship is more "organic", and that larger nacelles are part of that look. Who knows until we see the trailer with James Bond.

organic?? like carrots or turnips???

this ain't sounding all too well ;)

I suspect that at the end of the day - this 'Future-is-Here' version of our beloved NCC-1701 will be the ruling ship of all time... as it will combine the spirit of TOS Enterprise w/ the 21st-Century-state-of-the-art-movie technology.

If they're smart, they'll make it look a little like Vektor's version. To wit:

Please for the love of all that is good in the world tell me you're joking. "Organic"? That's about as bad as the new Knight Rider's KITT having a T-1000 "nano poly thingamajigger hoo haw" skin on it, or whatever is supposedly allowing a car to shapeshift.

I don't know what's more pathetic, that Hollywood is churning out such garbage or that audiences are allowing Hollywood to churn out such garbage.

I really like this design. I like deg's version better, but this one is pretty nice. It's original and completely recognizeable as the original NCC-1701, yet detailed enough to translate nicely to the big screen. Unfortunately, nothing like this will be seen in the movie. It is already apparent by the "new" look of the bridge, that J.J. and company have completely thrown any simblance of historical accuracy out the window. The "new" NCC-1701 will only be recognizeable as the Enterprise because it has a saucer, two nacelles, and an engineering section. The look will be completely different. My money is on Gabe Koerner's design. It's nice, but it's not the Enterprise. Oh well, we just need to live with it. Nothing can be changed now. It's done. So quit griping! That means me!!

Wow, that just rocks. Some slight texture changes and at once she looks like grand enough for the big screen. :thumbup1:

I don't think that the exterior of the E will be changed very much, while Paramount allowed JJ et al to change the interior, they were more restrictive on the E. And while I would not mind seeing something like Koerner's version, I don't think that they will do much more than changing the skin.
It is like with the D7, give it some texture and you get the K'tinga which looks great on the big screen.

I hope you're right.
