The New Enterprise (from Star Trek)? July 03 2015

Where does time goes? Back in 1996 I was a senior at Ohio State (Mechanical Engineering) and although not a big Trekkie, a friend of mine convinced me to go watch Star Trek First Contact.

I think it was very lucky as First Contact ended up being one of the better Star Trek movies, but the reason why it is so dear to me almost 20 years later is that fact that that was the first time I got to see the Enterprise-E. With the elongated saucer and long nacelles, it was just such a sleeker and so different from Enterprise-D.

The funny thing is that still in my mind, the Enterprise-E is the "new Enterprise".
