This ship design was never used in the show but it was supposed to be an upgrade for the NX Enterprise in later seasons if the show didn't get cancelled.

New warp 6 and greater engine require more space than what the NX class can hold.
The design it self has some features from the Constitution class added in. Like the old deflector satellite dish and the red line on the warp nacelle.

How do people like the design?

I think we can see from this where "inspiration" for the Oddysey's support craft docking method came from check out the notes on the warp core.

I like this. As usual TV execs were looking for instant hit, when Enterprise was more of a grower. It was just coming into it's own as they cancelled it. I like where they were taking the design. Still recognisable as derived from the NX-01 but now starting to feel like the starfleet designs we recognise. I am sure I read that was what the designer was going for.

here's hoping that pwe and cbs can secure the design for the game. I would definitely buy it. I like the NX-01 but too me it isnt trek enough. Heck even if they hadn't made it quite as metallic and coated it in some sort of white ceramic (ala space shuttle) that might have been enough to sway me. Anyway I am digressing. great refit. hope to see it in-game. doubt we will ever see it onscreen now unless jjverse has some sort of flashback in movie - heh would be fun if this was the ship khan stole

and another couple of great shots of the refit - oh and if you own the nx-01 kit someone has made a refit add on to make it into what would have been. http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/2010/...ing-the-fleet/ & http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=26713

I saw this design a while ago, and I really, really hoped it'd be an option for the NX class in game. at the least if it could be given as some sort of upgrade to power it up... spent ages earning dilithium to get the NX class and it can't stand up to a raptor excort.

Looks totally sweet though. Does the book series that continue past the finale have it added eventually?

I think it looks good. My only concern is I?m not sure where the shuttle bay is supposed to go. It looks like the thing connecting the new engineering section to the primary hull would cover up at least the first half of the shuttle bay, and even if it didn?t, launching and recovering shuttles with the engineering hull right underneath could be kind of awkward. And from the diagram it looks like the traditional area for the shuttle bay at the back of the secondary hull is being used to insert and remove the warp core.

And why are my apostrophes being replaced with qustion marks?

"Fancy" apostrophes (usually from Windows) don't translate well to some forums and formats, and get converted to a "unknown character". Just use simple straight quotes and apostrophes, as in this post.
