Now you can see what the ship actually looks like as was seen in the trailer: Enterprise being constructed

Kinda looks like the TMP saucer with Gabe's nacelles.

The nacelles seem a bit big (might be the view tough), but the detail is breathtaking, and I love the aztec pattern, nice touch there.

All in all I like it!  Smiley

If this is real, then I love it.  It does have a definite TMP feel to it, though those nacelles are definitely old school.

That level of detail in the scaffolding around the ship, and the ship itself...that's not like anything I can recall seeing in Trek before.  This will be awesome if it's an indication of the seriousness they're putting into the story, sort of like the level of seriousness in Batman now compared to the 89 Batman movie.  I've been advocating that kind of seriousness for years now, and in the wake of BSG, I would expect nothing less.

Looks like they added an extra tier to the superstructure.

You can even see one of the plasma screens online in the exposed section of the bridge, the "domer" part of the saucer does have a more tiered step up to the bridge, and the nacelles do look a lot different.

Looks like a frosty winter evening too, if she was launched 2245, are we looking at late 2244 here?

Yeah, are they thicker than on the original or is it my imagination?

No, they're much beefier. Much.

They look shorter, thicker and much smoother, but I just love seeing the turbines inside.

Now this makes me somewhat hopeful.  But is it just me or do the exposed sections near the bridge kinda make it look like they're trying for a double decker bridge?

Kick-ass. That's all I can say. I'm a bit iffy on the nacelles, but I'll reserve judgement on that until I get a better view.

I'm thinking the nacelles may just look really huge cause they're not actually connected to the ship yet, so they're temporarily closer to the saucer until they're done.

Anyhoo, looks pretty cool!

Wow looks bitchin!!!!

Im inclined to agree with Jedigreedo that the nacelles might not be in place yet or we're just looking at a peice of scaffolding.   Beyond that I love it.  This picture just looks so damn real too.  It sort of looks like the classic Enterprise with some movie/TNG style hullplating.  I just love all the little details cant wait to see the full thing.

The nacels clearly aren't finished yet. You can actually see either the warp coils or structural framing on them. They also look like they are a bit close to the saucer, but it's hard to tell from the angle. They may not be in place yet, or they may be bigger as this is a much "newer" (as in older) version of the 1701 than we've ever seen.

Now that you mention it, it does doesn't it.  And there apears to be another set near the rim of the saucer in about the same area.

Now I think in the teaser discription the reference to the airplane like nacelles were the turbine like bussard collector parts.
