Thank you! I have to say the design grew on me over time, but I'm generally a TNG+ person if I'm honest. ;)

im in love with the enterprise e
every time i see the kelvin i think why did they build it upside down? it took me forever to figure out the bottom is the warp engine

I think the most beautiful ship design, the most majestic for sure, is the Galaxy-class. Nothing - for me - has beaten that yet in terms of elegance. But it would be boring if everyone loved the same look! ;)

Hehe, well, in the TNG episode "Relics", Scotty is in the holodeck on the bridge of the 1701 and says the following to Picard:

"There comes a time when a man can't fall in love again. He knows it's time to stop. I don't belong on your ship. I belong here. This was my home. This was where I had a purpose..."

And I suppose that's what it is. Once you grow up around a certain show you enjoy that most. I said that after I watched the latest Star Trek movie. While I liked it in general, I can now understand how all the TOS fans felt when TNG was first aired. ;)
