So you say that you wouldn't pay a fair price of 30£ for a lovely Kelvin salt shaker?
How shall the franchise survive if we don't buy all the merchandise crap.

Well, since I never bought large quantities of the merchandise crap before (because tat is tat in both universes merchandise catalogues) I have no answer.

And apart from the DVD I won't be buying any in the future!

Yes, but not in 1080p resolution. I personally like the Kelvin design better than the Enterprise.

If they had kept the more industrial design aesthetic like the Kelvins, for the Enterprise, we would have had a badass looking Enterprise I think.

The current Enterprise looks skinny and weak, instead of muscular and badass, if that makes any sense.

I always thought that skinny and weak applied to the TOS ship, to be truthful.

You talk about the ship or the captain?

A ship is only as good as her Captain!

To be fair, most Enterprises since the classic original have been built to be appropriately bigger and thicker. Even Defiant and Voyager were designed with a certain "ruggedness" in mind that the classic original didn't have...

Of course, the evolution is clear.

But what I mean to say is that I never found the TOS ship 'strong' I guess would be the phrase.

I tend to think spindly when I look at it a lot.

That's what happens when you design a ship meant to take full advantage of being built in space.

Oh, wait...
