The New USS Enterprise

November 11, 2008

Entertainment Weekly has released the first official photo of the new USS Enterprise, which is really the old USS Enterprise, from the J.J. Abrams movie due next year. If you look closely, you can see a shuttle approaching.

Oh, she looks sweet. Enough like the original TV version to make me happy, but with a few modern tweaks to bring her up to speed. I like it. The original Enterprise is still my favourite starship of all time, and this sustains that. I was worried she’d be silver and armoured and sleek, but Abrams has kept the look and feel of those 1960s models.

“If you’re going to do Star Trek, there are many things you cannot change,” Abrams told EW. “The Enterprise is a visual touchstone for so many people. So if you’re going to do the Enterprise, it better look like the Enterprise, because otherwise, what are you doing?”

This is just the latest suggestion that this movie might be exactly what the franchise needs. Abrams appears to be on the right track.

Of course, not everyone agrees with me.
