Anyone who know me, knows I hate re-imagined Connies/Enterprises. So a few weeks back I set a poll on which of the Alternate vessels I should have a go at rendering, in an attempt to gain an appreciation for them. (Yeah right...ain't gonna happen.)

As beautiful as beautiful is gonna get.  Of all the sci-fi space ships the design of the star trek ships are most ellagent and beautiful of all.

Wonderful job. ;)

This is a look JJ Abrams SHOULD have went with!
She has the lines and look of the original but her secondary hull and Nacelles are tweaked but NOT as absurdly as the Enterprise evntually looked.
Best not get me started on what JJ Abrams should have done, we'd be here a while. ;P That man couldn't direct a movie to save his life. :( Or a TV series for that matter. :no:

I was scratching my head throughout star Trek were I normally DON`T!
People keep telling me it was bad Trek, but a good movie. Thing is I've studied how movies are put together, so it's like: No it was a bad movie, here are the reasons why, then they just say I'm being a Trekkie geek, when none of the reasons I state have anything to do with Trek, they could apply to any movie :confused: that does things badly. :P

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the JJ Abrams film. I've been on the unfortunate end of a rampaging wing of "Star Trek is finally COOL" guys, and love to hear some intelligent, reasoned thoughts on what JJ Abrams decided to do with Star Trek.
I was going to do a more detailed review on it, but everyone seems to miss the point. So very briefly.

Watching ST2009 was like reading a book with the worst grammar and spelling ever, it was grossly unstructured, the characterisation was cardboard and just plain wrong. Things happened just because the script said they happened, there was no set-up, or pay-off, there was no character development whatsoever, important plot elements just appear out of nowhere, the film contradicts itself in directly following scenes. Main characters suddenly become background extras, there is no cohesion to the movie whatsoever. :|

And all that is just basic script and direction criticism, it fails as a movie before you even get to looking at it as a Sci-Fi movie, let alone a revival of Star Trek.
