The secondary hull in combination with the nacelles and struts still look like a woman on her back with her legs spread--from certain angles. I think this was intentional. It is way too "artsy" for my taste and not nearly utilitarian looking. Even the 1701-D looks more utilitarian than this one.

seems like the refit NCC 1701 and A from the Motion picture are the most popular ships plus the TOS. I have the NCC 1701A in 1/350 size with the cool base - nothing but super complaints thus might pass on the new 2020 ship.

Still a hideous, disproportionate and sloppy reworking of a carefully and artfully designed original. Like a cartoon ship drawn by someone who doesn't know how to draw cartoons. Almost like someone was intentionally trying to make it look as stupid as possible.

I agree. It was intentional. I'm sure they phrased it in terms like, "deconstruction," "subverting expectations," and the like but it all amounts to a glittery makeover with lipstick, implants, high heels, and a short skirt.

One of the things that I find interesting about the design is that the edge of the saucer is 5 decks thick. I know plenty of people will argue that it's only 2 decks. But, observe the dorsal pylon that connects the saucer to the engineering hull: the windows are spaced vertically much closer to each other than the edge of the saucer. Easily, 5 of the dorsal pylon decks would fit into the saucer's edge.

but maybe the decks on the saucer have 15 foot ceilings and the pylon decks have only 8 foot ceilings!
perspiring minds want to know

It's a beautiful render, very realistic and complete. Alas, it's still not "THE" Enterprise. Despite it's creators' protestations, it's still a pig with lipstick. There is nothing graceful about any of the "JJ'Prizes". Also, they need to avoid using breweries when filming interior scenes...

Whether or not the design is to someones liking really doesn't matter in this case since a) it's questionable there will even be a fourth JJTrek movie and b) even if there is, they will more then likely tinker with the design, making this design obsolete.
