The Enterprise Through The Ages | JJ Abrams' NCC-1701
The Enterprise Through The Ages
JJ Abrams' NCC-1701
With JJ Abrams� updated USS Enterprise, fans have been given an all-new Star Trek flagship with an updated, super sleek design. It�s certainly a step up from the Airfix model used in the original series but those aren�t the only two ships that have born the moniker Enterprise. There have been 10 other designs for ships called Enterprise over the course of Star Trek and you can buff up your geek credentials by reading about all of them here.

TAKE THAT BACK EMPIRE!
The Enterprise E was NOT upstaged by the Defiant! Anyway, the refit and the E are the best deffo. And the new one one looks amazing. Cant wait to see it in action. Nuff said. ... Read More

RE: I like it
The new enterprise looks amazing but the inside looks like the in side of the crusier at the start of STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE. The inside of 1701-D looks better AND i hated that ship it was to big. Iwas happy when it was destroyed in Generations. Possibly the best ships were the nx-01,1701/aand 1701_E ... Read More

RE:
I know this one!  The release date was changed from December to May because the studio saw there was one weekend in the summer where there were no other premieres.  Makes sense to me -- as the only major film opening that weekend it's got the whole box office to itself, and action films do better in summer than winter openings. ... Read More

I Don't Like It
I'm looking at the ship and I just don't like what they did to the lower hull. I had expected them to update the original design for today's SFX standards, but what the frak did they do? My favorite Enterprise is NCC-1701-A from the movies. The original TOS version was sort of a clunky thing, but the movie refit for Trek I-VI looks like a thoroughbred. I have the huge Polar Lights model on my dresser, and she looks like she's straining at the bit and wants to fly. Second favorite: Enter... Read More

It sucks. It looks like it was deigned by Toyota. The original Enterprise from the original series is the best. Followed by the enterprise E. ... Read More

The Original -- The Legend.
The best Enterprise is the one that started it all. Sure, it didn't look too hot under the original production values -- but have you LOOKED at the photo of it here? It's not simplistic -- it's military-grade simple. It's Keep It Simple, Stupid, solid engineering simple. You want glowing lights everywhere? Watch a show with a damn Christmas tree. These are military (or paramilitary) naval vessels, not the Vegas fucking Strip in space. And Ryan Church's Enterprise? Looks like someone kyped the... Read More

I grew up on Next Gen so I think I would have to go with the Enterprise D. Though I was rather keen on the NX-01. The new Enterprise does look at tad squashed, but will be reserving judgement till I see it in all its glory...why is the release date so far away!?!? ... Read More

Abrams' Enterprise
Just like everything else I've seen for this movie (with the exception of Quinto as Spock) this is one UGLY motherfuckin' ship! It looks like someone's grabbed the Enterprise & horizontally squashed it. The best looking Enterprise has been the Sovereign class 'E' used in First Contact onwards. ... Read More

NX-01
The 'Enterprise' spin-off series never gets much love. It was probably my favourite incarnation of Trek so far (I know I am in a minority there). The T'pol and Trip love story was touching (T'pol being super hot didn't hurt either) and Archer was a great captain. Liked the NX-01 loads too. More love for 'Enterprise' please! ... Read More

RE: Refit, not reboot
A lot of Star Trek ships really are beautiful compared to pretty much any other sci-fi franchise, including Star Wars. Picking a favourite Enterprise is extremely hard though, but gun to my head, I'd have to stump for the E just ahead of the D. I have to disagree with empire though as I think the Enterprise J is extremely beautiful and looks completely badass as well. The Enterprise B is extremely ugly though and they should never have used an Excelsior class vessel for the Federation Flag... Read More

Refit, not reboot
Gotta be Enterprise Refit. It still looks huge, yet elegant (much like myself), and beautifully lit in the first movie. Wish I could say the same about JJ Abrams' rather ungainly looking effort. ... Read More

Ugly?!? The Variant 1701-D looks amazing, one of the better ST ships IMO, along with the Akira class of course :-) Aaaah, the joys of being a geek.......... ... Read More
