Visit the Ex Astris Scientia site. It has all the rejected Excelsior design (I think).

Personally I like the design - apart from the flat saucer, which is hideous.

Some of them I liked others were far off.
Some of those ships in the scene were not damaged at all. It implies perhaps they were disabled by a disruption weapon.

I get more of a Star Wars feeling with this ship. I remember seeing this image in The Art of Star Trek.

It's like a Star Destroyer and the Enterprise mated...

Doen't it look the that one ship cruising above the moon in the opening of Enterprise?

Sorry. Rushed.

During the opening credits of Enterprise there's a shot of a ship flying over a moon base of some type. It passes over the camera and looks like that concept design above, I think.

I never liked the 4 necell ships (Stargazer, being one). Just seemes to say we are desperate to make our ships look more powerful so we added more engines.
