Actually the films have zero rear views of this ship, because this ship didn't appear in the films. They only ever featured the refit Constitution class, not the original.

Thank you for agreeing. Not sure what the gripe is. Do you not like the hull texture/coloring? The Original Enterprise always had that eggshell white color to her. Too bright for the light around.
If the rant is the hull color/texture that can be altered at the ship yard. Or at least the choice was there and I cycled through them. But I kept the normal skin. Personally I like the old girl.

And just because I have it on hand....

I opened up the pictures on the thread expecting to see some problems.

I see none at all. That is the original Enterprise.

There are still some MINOR discrepencies (the hull registry font is totally wrong, the connecting dorsal mounts somewhat further back on the engineering hull than it should, the bussard collectors are textured oddly, missing paint, odd hull texture, etc)..

But for the most part, I have to say that model is definitely a "Good Faith" interpretation of the Constitution Class.. though it is a tad small when compared to the LtCmdr rank Constitution II starship.. but it's definitely about 90-95% correct. Definitely good enough for a video game.

The "Blue Beams" the OP is referring to are the engine trails that let you know the ship is moving. I think the OP would be happier with the second tier Constitution II model.. though that also has some indescrepencies and texture compromises.

Remember, this is a representative of the 1966-67 Enterprise. Dang right it looks cheap. You should see the actual model that was used on the TV show. Amazing how they can make crap look good on TV and in movies. Sure, she's showing her age, but I'll proudly fly her.

i think the issue is that it doesnt have that paper mache/toilet roll texture to it.........space travel was hard in those days, after the third world war the federation could only use toilet roll and news paper to build space ships......if you look closely at the TOC episodes you can see the reflection of Page 3 Models and Sports Pages in Spocks Science Monitor.........
