There was much speculation over what Abrams would do with the ship’s design with many assuming he’d go for a more industrial look by some of the clips seen of the ship under construction in the first teaser. What we actually have is a sleek, streamlined vessel that owes a great deal to the original NCC-1701 we saw in the original series.

Warning, extreme geek-talk follows. The conical nacelles with blue running lights a welcome addition and the stylised housing around the main deflector is a nice touch as well. As qualified Trekkies we give Abrams’ Enterprise our seal of approval and, while we’ll always have a soft spot for the Enterprise D, this is a worthy effort to update an iconic design.
