OK, there seems to be a LOT of confusion over which version of the Enterprise that is. It is OBVIOUSLY the one from the reboot movie. The nacelles are tapered EXACTLY as they are on the new Enterprise from the movie. And no way in hell is it the 1701-E, the saucer is ROUND, the saucer on the E was OVAL.

Sylvia_Bandersnatch: I don't consider any of this Star Trek anyway, even with Paramount's imprimatur. Abrams admitted he hadn't even seen the show before being tapped to direct it.

I liked Abrams' TREK fine, though I didn't know he'd never watched the show
before he got brought in. Even with that, I thought he did a better job than
Brannon Braga did with VOYAGER.

That's like asking Uwe Boll to direct the remake of Lawrence of Arabia, and he decides that Lawrence is actually Lara Croft's son, and the British Empire was wiped out by atomic bombs dropped by Chamberlain, and Churchill comes back in a dream sequence somewhere in Canada.... You can expect some great action, but you wouldn't want to be sober for it. Also, bring motion sickness medicine.

I'd watch that movie.

Confabulat: There appears to be some confusion about the size of the current movie Enterprise. I would think the nerds would have sorted all this out by now.

I was a bit surprised to see that, actually. I had thought it'd been.....for lack of a better term...'established',that the reboot Enterprise was roughly the size of the Enterprise E. Then I see that other list showing two different sizes for it. Odd. They usually have the 'specs' for those things pretty ironed out. Of course, isn't the size of both versions of the Galactica still fuzzy, too?

Still think the Enterprise E and the refit version from the TOS movies are the best looking versions . The reboot model isn't bad, just looks a little off to me, like the Enterprise D still does. Bus stop lounge bridge or Apple Store bridge? Both weird.

I like how the Enterprise is in the "in development" color.
