i think you and a few others are finding this new trek movie a little hard to understand. The original model was a sleek beasty, but the times have changed, we have moved on, we are in 2008 and a new trek is coming. we have the characters and a ship, with some subtle tweaks, we shall see how it all pans out. If you want to use a car analagy, check out the original dodge charger, and then the latest version. Same car, moved with the times..something that sometimes its a good thing to do...

This is a good point. You need a new ship for the big screen, simple as that, no matter whether it looks better or worse.
I consider the D to look better than the E, but she is designed for the little screen.
Besides, design coherence is important as well, a redesigned interior which does not fit with the same old exterior.

Well, I just so happened to have watched Star Trek First Contact yesterday and watched the teaser trailer they included with the movie, which is what came out before the theatrical trailer, and not once do you see the Enterprise E, it's all shots of the Enterprise D in the teaser trailer.

Thanks and I shouldn't have been so quick to jump on you, either. I don't know what my problem was, yesterday. Maybe it was spending time with my parents--and I'm 42.

"Subtle tweaks"? I would really hate to see what you would consider "major modifications". And I think you mean the Dodge "Challenger", not the Charger. The original Charger was a sleek two-door musclecar. The new Charger is a four-door sedan. But the new Challenger is the old Challenger with smoother lines. However, not a good analogy. Since the new Challenger represents over 30 years of technological progression. The Enterprise in this movie is supposed to represent the ship before the voyages of Kirk and crew. So it should not look like a 24th centure ship from TNG. We are supposed to be looking at the history of the future according to Star Trek. That future has been filmed and is visually accessable. This movie takes place before what we have already seen. It should look as such.

I must have to say that I ran into this with my wife when the picture came out, and I was explaining everything that was wrong with the Enterprise and she said, "Honey, your nitpicking."

My wife isn't into Star Trek other than watching the movies and having a good time, so I guess this is the real comparison.

The old TOS Enterprise and the new Abramsprise next to each other is like having an F-14 and a F-15 next to each other. Plane afficiendos know the difference right off the bat while people not so interested look at them and go, "Looks like the same planes to me."

It looks like an earlier version of the O.S. 's 5-year missions, and it is not greenish in color (like the original 11-foot model for filming in tos)

You know, when I first saw that I thought it was off. There are still a couple things I dislike about that particular one, but I have to say that compared the Church's Organiprize, they're rather trifling details. (The bulbous front ends on the nacelles and the 1957 Chevy-esque fins don't thrill me, but at least that interpretation looks like it could plausibly have been 'slimmed down' for the vision we saw in The Cage'.)
