Very entertaining! Nice job to the guy/gal who worked on that!

And to put my two cents in...I like it! Looks like she has some junk in the trunk, but that's not neccesarily a bad thing!!!

Mah! Its still the same awfull ugly duckling. The CGI job was great, the effects where breathtaking, agreed. The action sequences looked amazing. You know, take an ugly duckling and throw it into a running jet engine: The result will look amazing and absolutely action packed and breathtaking too. But its still an ugly duckling.

In other terms: The CGI is done so well and so superb that the sheer uglyness of the new ship doesnt bother me to much. But as soon as I see her on a photo, I feel sick in the gut again. So, keep the thing moving, tone the lights down, distract me with phaser bursts and torpedo explosions and I do enjoy it.

The new E may find you attractive intelligent and sensitive so go easy on her, man.

I think it was designed to look great in motion. And it does. I don't really care if it looks bad in scale model form displayed on someone's desk in a Flickr post under flourescent lighting. It was designed for the film and it works in the film.

I got the impression that the ship was designed to look fine when turned around its horizontal axis like visible in some shots in the trailer.
Same for the Kelvin, which is clearer visible in the last sequence. Remember when the first picture of the Kelvin was released and everyone was confused about which is up and down and which is the nacelle and which the secondary hull?

So what all the defenders of the new design said turned out to be true, you gotta see the ship in motion and from different angles before you can judge it.

That was excellent it's like still getting the same excitement of a new movie that actually doesn't betray your memories.

On the Tread Topic:
I'm not sure what everyone else was expecting but the ship looks the same in motion and in all three trailers. There is nothing different at all. It doesn't look any better or worse than the first time you see it. It still has over sized engines and a goose neck posture while looking like a mismatch of design concepts.

It still looks bad and poorly designed.
