Post neck/engineering section

Don't like neck/engineering section placement. They look OK but the saucer and neck parts are set too far back on top of engineering section... darn near the middle. Like they hit a wall going forward and those parts got crunched back... or to use a gun term... it looks half cocked. lol

Like I said in another post, this placement makes the navigational dish part look way too far out in front like a 'big-nose'... but like many have said, perhaps this pic is not fully accurate so I'll just hope for the best.



Rest of it is fine btw... interesting new mix of style as compared to previous ship looks.

It's funny, because a bunch of members thought the same thing, then began posting comparison photos with the TOS E, and the neck/secondary hull placement isn't that far off at all. But other proportion ratios make it look a bit different than if you isolate the two designs at the neck joint.

Maybe there should be a new poll on what people think about the new E after seeing the trailer.....hmmm.

Do you mean a poll which doesn't offer six negative choices and only one positive choice?

Oh, geez...I thought this was a thread about a more acceptance of the TV series Star Trek: Enterprise.

My bad...

I said that I did not like the nacelles - to clarify: I specifically do not like the lumpy bit were the nacelle joins the pylon.

Other than that: All clear!

But the lumpy bits are the best parts of Trek!

I have replica models of all of the Enterprises, except the "D", I really HATED the look of that pregnant guppie saucer. And the sad thing is, that was the last ship Gene Roddenberry had any input on the design of. I like this new ship for two reasons. 1) It looks "enough" like the old "E" to suit me. 2) They have made it look like a truly functional ship. Hasn't any of you thought, 'How in the hell can the Bussard collectors collect or emit any type to space gases if they are covered over???' Sorry, but I'm an old Navy man and I was a radar and weapons system technician for the ten years I was enlisted and common sense tells you that for gases to be collected or emitted there has to be openings to space.
So yes, I do like the new "E" because someone with common sense and technical know how designed this ship to answer all these questions. This ship doesn't look like a model, it looks real and functional!!!!
