You see not only Abrams’ vision of the ship but his effort to evoke that sequence from the first film that so captured his imagination.

Abrams said: “If you’re going to do Star Trek there are many things you cannot change. 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?”

I like this design. This is very much the Enterprise, and yet, it’s been worked over with a more modern, updated appearance.  I just hope that the ship will look great on the big screen.
