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....

And no, it does not.
your ship doesn't have to be viewed from the rear, even in combat.. you can rotate the camera view however you want

It looks pretty good to me. Almost makes me wish I had preordered from GameStop. Guess I'll just have to wait and see if it gets added to the C-Store instead someday.

Personally, looks fine to me.
That is exactly how it is supposed to look.

If you watch the two-part Enterprise episode "In a Mirror, Darkly" http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/In_a_Mirror,_Darkly you will see the Defiant from various angles and let me tell you it's the best two episodes of this entire series.

Watching will also help demonstrate just how powerful the Constitution class of ship really is.

I thought it looked fine. I actually had someone invite me to the bridge hoping to see some retro bridge or something but yeah, same normal bridge

Original model, now on display in the Smithsonian.
I stand corrected! The model looks great! Now I have to go to D.C. to view it.

As another poster said in passing. You CAN change the ship's texturing at the shipyard. Heck you can even paint the hull with one of the 9 different schemes.

Honestly, I think that the GS Conny's nacelles are a smidgen too long. The TOS ship had a Shiny Saucer with no texturing. Unfortuately the TOS ship's rear was quite boring. The Nacelle end caps seem to be correct. Though I remember the Top and bottom saucer domes being green tinted.

I think they used the Conny from the Enterprise episode "A mirror Darkly" as this one has flyovers from all angles and more than one shot from the rear. In fact SyFy showed both parts of that episode last night and the Conny in game really looks like the one in game (ignoring the quibbles listed above)

It's a nice fun thing and I don't feel cheated that I bought it (In fact I purchased both the Direct2Download version and the Game stop versions to get all of their goodies.)

Must agree that the font is wrong... the original series used Eurostyle for a lot of the ship registry etc. (Not sure if the original one shown in the smithsonian has that font on it). The Starfleet Technical Manual circa 1976 however used it extensively for ship designations etc. I think they should model it, but more than anything, I want a playable game first.
