AH! GAME PENALTY!

The NCC-1701-A came after Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home...

She was the U.S.S. Yorktown recommissioned as the Enterprise.

You = 0



Edit**: Oh wait...I'm an ***. You said AFTER III....technically you are right.

Me = -1

You = 2

Blast you.

The engine Pylons look droopy, the saucer section out of place. Yet, at the same time when I see it zooming around in the trailer, It takes on a totally new life and somehow becomes much more identifiable as a constitution class starship. It's like the motion actually breathes a bit of sparkle and life into the otherwise, saggy model, leading me to believe that we should all take a deep breath, and wait to judge the ship when we can see it, to be blunt, on a really big screen, and for more than a few frames at a time.
You know, I've been looking at this set of ships all right next to each other for a while. I'm had something on my mind, but until right this moment, I haven't been able to articulate it.

That is, the last one - the "A" - is the only ship of the set that even looks like it has any depth or chance of being "real". The newest Enterprise (the one in the middle) looks like a toy, and the classic Enterprise looks like an old toy.

You're right.
it is the only ship that has the chance of being real.

lol...because of those 3 pictures...only the 1701-A is the ship still using the actual film model.

The TOS is a CGI version of the original, and the Abramsprise is equally CGI.

CGI is too perfect.
It can't recreate the minor imperfects that make things look real.

I've always liked the "A" alot because it does look real. I think JJ's ship looks real too though. JJ's ship has a certain "toughness" that the others just don't have.

But that's just my opinion...
