TOS / TOS movies Enterprise.

While I don't HATE the nuEnterprise, I don't love her either. She's a better design than the Intrepid-class, Excelsior-class, and Galaxy-class, but she doesn't compare to the original Constitution-class or the Sovereign-class. Those are absolutely beautiful and classic designs in my eyes.

Yes I cannot choose a favorite here. I love the Original Series Enterprise and never would I want to see it replaced on the show. And the same with the new Enterprise because I do not wish for that to be replaced on the movie. I very much like both designs.

Well, seeing as how I grew up with TNG, not TOS, I have no real devotion to the original Enterprise of the TOS days.

I think that the nuEnterprise is more aesthetically pleasing than the old one. I care how it works, but this is still film so looks go a long way.

I also consider the new Enterprise more aesthetically pleasing. I like the curves and organic shapes. I am still devoted to the Original Enterprise for the show and original movies but I like them both equally for what they are.

I dont completely hate the original Enterprise, but I would be a bit disappointed if they used it for the new movie. I'm hoping that they explain a few things (such as size) in the next movie (call me crazy, but I dont expect a full explanation of the ship in a two hour movie) but I thought the overall design was nice. The only part that bothered me was enigneering, as it looked way out of place.

Yes I would not wish for the original Enterprise to be in the new movie either. I am happy for a reimagining concept as they chose. I do not expect a long explanation to verify the size either but they can do it quickly in a display screen in a movie shot. This is a good way in which canon and even easter eggs are placed into previous Star Trek. It is like how we know there are 20 shuttles in the Kelvin. They do not say this but there are 20 shuttles in one shot. If they do not I will not care though.

I agree they can improve Engineering. There are some fans who do not care but I think most fans wish to see it improved for the sequel. It is well known they could not go with the concept design because they did not have enough resources to create it. Maybe they can improve that in the sequel and say that Scotty gave it an upgrade.

1. Refit/NCC-1701-A
2. Edselprise (the name I saw on these boards for JJ's Enterprise)
3. Original TOS ship

And that's not saying I don't like the original.  I just like the new movie ship's appearance better.

I STILL think that the 'initial reveal' is actually the worst look we get of the ship in the whole movie, and the fact that this was the first shot to be released caused a lot of people's initial negative reaction (including mine, actually).  But it has grown on me...

But the NCC-1701-A is the king of all Enterprises, IMO.

If interested, here's my ranking of ALL the 'Enterprises':

1. NCC-1701-A
2. NCC-1701-E
3. Edeslprise/JJprise
4. NCC-1701 original
5. NCC-1701-B
6. (by a lot) NCC-1701-D (unlike JJ's, this one NEVER grew on me AT ALL)

I don't add "C" because we just haven't seen it enough...

I literally "love" the TOS Enterprise. I hate it when things change!

nuEnterprise annoys me because it looks like an Apple gadget. I'd call it/her iNterprise or iEnterprise.

I like the classic and the refit in context which they were presented. In the same way I like the new Enterprise in the context which it was presented.
