The nacelles finally look normal, and not bulbous and dwarfish.

Nice hobbyist model but not as good as the real one IMO. Is the top picture official? I've only ever seen the foreground nacelle cropped off the image. The little shark fin on the end is interesting.

Very nice attempt I'd say... in the second pic there... the first one is ok as well and looks better with the engines and saucer completed. (unlike official photo)

Here's a better shot using official pic if anyone is interested... yay self promotion...

It still looks like it road into town with a boat load of funky town on the back.

The new E has grown on me. It looks pretty good.

Aw, I thought we'd gotten a new promotional shot of the Sexyprise or something.

The one on dA looks pretty good, but yeah, some of the proportions have been tweaked a bit. Though you'd really have to know what to look for to even really tell.

If you watch the teaser trailer closely, the "little shark fin" does appear to be on the nacelles.

Correct. The fins are on either side of each nacelle.

Cool

Sorry, guys, I just can't get into the design.

They should have stayed closer to the original or to the movie upgrade.

This thing just looks too weird.

Does it look like a Federation starship? Yes.

Does it make me think Enterprise? No.
