I'd chose D over E any day.
I've been throught how badly the ship was designed but E is the begining of Trek ships leaving that old familiarity and losing the explorere quality.

I like both, but there are two ships nothing else can compare with: the Constitution-Refit and the Galaxy Class.

D! The ENT-E looks too aerodynamic, that's good for a small ship, but the E should be a battleship not a highspeed racer.

The Ent-D just looks BIIIG, like a flying fortress.
It seems to take more space than the E. If you had to put Galaxy and Sovereign into a box, the volume of the Galaxy box would be bigger.

The E appears too small from some perspectives and only in ST8 when u see it the first time it creates a similar WOW-EFFECT like the huge, voluminös Galaxy Class created every time from almost every perspective.

I do belive the E is actually smaller. Starfleet banned families from Starhips after the Borg incursions and the Dominon, so I heard.

Ironically, when TNG wrapped up, the art department took the main Enterprise-D model and changed its registry to NCC-1701-E before they put it away in storage...just in case.

Memory Alpha has a photo of it somewhere in their archives, but I don't think they allow hotlinking...

So they were thinking of just having another Galaxy Class ship eh? Must have went the way of the original (and better) uniforms they made for Generations. Never understod why they dumped those.

The Enterprise-D was good for the series, but for the movies I think they needed a new and fresh design. The Enterprise-E was just that.
