That bugger is butt ugly....*shakes head*
Only star trek fans star a butt in the face with googly eyes. I can't believe people like it.
What a piece of honest to God crap.

It's not a nice looking ship. I'll give you that, Saq. However, I think it's nifty that the little bugger is finally getting some face time.

I'm also digging the secondary hall on the ENT!

Can't wait to get the new calender. The XCV-330 is an interesting design I've been intrigued about for a while, will be nice to see that.

The NX-refit looks quite delicate and clumbsy, the nacelles looks like they could fall off at any second, this kind of makes sense though as the ships have become more sturdy with each deisgn and it does follow the natural evolution leading to the Constitution. Reckon I prefer the Akira-style NX, saying that it's still interesting, wouldn't say it was butt ugly.

Saq,
Your passions will be your undoing.

Can't say I get the fascination with the XVC-330 Enterprise either. Especially not when I read it was supposed to be a interstellar cruise liner...

...a passenger ship called Enterprise!!! What?!

As for the secondary hull on the NX-01......sorry folks, but after finally getting used to the "up-side-down Akira" after four seasons, tacking a secondary hull onto it, to retrospectively "correct" the original design oversight.

It just doesn't quite cut it. Sorry folks, I'm such a party pooper.

Hm. To your eyes. I was intrigued by the Declaration class starliner when I fairly 'devoured' the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology thirty years ago. Still have that book which, BTW, is chuck full of FNU class ships that make the Declaration class ship a thing of GREAT elegence and beauty in comparison.

(FNU = effin' ugly!)

I was always interested in what timeframe the XCV-330 was commissioned. It is established as being before Enterprise, but I wonder how far?

According to my official chronology that class was comissioned in 2133 and was in service until 2165. The Constitution class came along in 2188.

Now, again, this is from the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology published in 1980 in conjunction with, or rather immediately after the release of TMP. It was an official tie-in and was as 'canon' then as anything that wasn't onscreen ever was or could be. It's canosity(?) is now more than dubious, as the Declaration class Enterprise is described as the 'original Enterprise' in this publication.

ATC this doubtful canon status actually sorta makes it canon, in this mixed-up, muddled-up shook up Trek Universe(s)........except for Lola.

This is all that is known about it, disregarding the out of date spaceflight chronology stuff. http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/USS_..._%28XCV_330%29
