The art is lovely, but I prefer it when the perception is that battles were wider than a television screen.

Yeah, Trek always kept it dogfight style.

Well, in TOS it was more sensor contacts and hard maneuvers along trajectories. When they got money it was all in shot dogfighting.

Ooh, I remember that episode! Very beautiful work with the comet here. And your models as usual. I never noticed how detailed you'd made the nacelles there at the back until now. :)

Very nice! Kirk's victory made the Roms think twice about attacking the Feds. Speaking of luck ... I remember many moons ago when I played the Star Trek RPG and Kirk's stats had his luck at 99! And that was without bonus rolls. :D

You know, I was so sad when they did the Romulans on ENTERPRISE and they didn't do a clunkier version of the old Bird of Prey. Hated the kewl new Romulan ships in that show. Why shouldn't they be as clumsy, or clumsier, than the Federation, in that period. When they first appeared in the original series, they were doing tech exchange with the Klingons, fer crap's sake!

Then again, the NX also looked out of place...

I came to really like the NX, but all that stupid time war crap, all the new aliens, when they hadn't even met all the old aliens, yet, they just went off track. I don't know why Hollywood is so enamored of time travel stories, they almost always screw it up.

The only thing they needed from the Klingon was the technology for an antimatter-powered reactor. That ship that outgunned the Enterprise was FUSION-powered... Scary thing, isn't it?
Still, I too wonder why ENT had those TNG-like ships of theirs and not more appropriate to the continuity.

Kirk: "Easy Mister Satchel, I'll bang that Romulan chick and this fight will be over.":D

Bonus points for using the Romulans more, so many Original Series shots out there are all about the Klingons so this works for me.
