I like the Abrams E better than the original E, but I like the original Miranda better than the Mayflower. The angular rear section of the disk on te original gives it character. THe Mayflower just seems to lack something.
I think the look of the new Abrams ships is more industrial, I mean the pre Enterprise ships like the Kelvin and the one I linked. I would like to see the Enterprise look more like that.
I disliked the new E as well but its grown on me a little (actually I never cared for the original look, too plain, I much like the refit Constitution), altho I still think the warp nacelles have too many organic shapes. And what's with all the blue??
I can't stand the interiors tho, too flippin shiny. You'd need to wear sun glasses to go anywhere!
At least the hull is a nice color, not the plain white like in TOS.
Also, is the E still Constitution class? Memory alpha assumes it is but it was never mentioned in the movie.
