I dont either, but personaly I would have moved the neck forward a little more on the drive section.

I would agree with the neck positioning being moved forward, I probably would have also gone with an embedded deflector dish like the TMP Enterprise.

But overall, based on so far, I'm fine with it and would now like to see some fresh angles to get a better idea of the whole ship.

Oh god, I remember when TNG came out and my dad was like, "WTF is that!? This is not Star Trek." And I for some reason shared his grief. But then we all got used to it and ended up addicted to the show.

I liked TNG alright, but I still say WTF when I see the Ent-D.

I think the nacelles only look big because of the extra bits around the bussards and that they are mounted to the pylons right at the front rather than partway along like the original. They seem to be about the same length.

I'm actually starting to like the new design now, atleast, from the side view!
Although the nacelles do kinda remind me of the planet killer...

(woo my first post)

Hey! Be nice... The Ent-D was absolutely beautiful, may she rest in peace... What can I say, she was my favourite ST ship.

And I like the new ENT design even better than the original one...

There, I finally said it and I feel much better now...

Now you can throw tomatoes at me all you want.

Honestly, I disagree. It is neither fish, nor fowl. It is neither a pretty design, nor is it a practical or utilitarian one. There's too many curves and not enough angles, and it's way too streamlined for a vessel that has virtually no need whatsoever to be streamlined. At least the NX-01 was very utilitarian and looks like something that was thoughtfully designed and constructed. The Abramsprise, on the other hand, looks as if it were hatched in some labaratory from a genetically enhanced egg-sac, and grown in a test tube.
