Default Abramsprise as Enterprise E...

What if the new design of the Enterprise, lovingly called the 'Abramsprise' was the design of the Enterprise E. Would it have worked? Would it have worked better than the Sovereign Class Enterprise?

Personally I think it would've. It would've been a nice follow up to the Enterprise D, felt as though it could have come after the 'D' design-wise and yet still harken back to the 1701 Constitution design. Going back to the basics, yet keeping the continuity alive.





I could almost see it. Almost.

I think it would have been a neat successor to the D, if it was the alleged 700+ meters.

However, if it is the size of the original (which I believe it to be in Trek XI), then I'd have to say no.

One could claim that the Abramsprise does not merely incooperate elements from the first and second version of the NCC-1701 but also features some of the smoothness of the D.

I would have buyed it as E with perhaps a bit more hull texturing, it definitely looks better than the Sovereign-class.

Just out of curiosity...why don't you like the Sovereign?

Well today's technology allows us a more detailed vessel that the old models could have ever hope to accomplish (as much as I love models).

Didn't do too well for Star Wars though IMO. I still prefer the model look of the originals to any vessel in the prequels.

I like it (I like pretty much all starships in Trek) but the D or the Abramsprise look a bit better IMO, perhaps because the Voyager-like flatness of the Sovereign does not create the impression of a flagship as opposed to the 'upright stature' of the D.
The Abramsprise is also a bit flatter than the previous two versions of the NCC-1701, but not too flat so I still buy that it is the flagship.

So flat vs. 'upright' translates perhaps into grandeur vs. aerodynamic.
