I still think it is a pretty ugly design. One (or three, five, seven etc) nacelles ships don't fit too well with me. Can't say I've ever seen an odd-pair nacelled ship that I've actually liked (The Galaxy Retrofit was nice, and had big guns along with a cloaking device, but that was about it).
I think ships should stick to an even pair of nacelles. Commonly two, occasionally four, and rarely, six (the Prometheus had six, though didn't use them all at the same time).
So the Kelvin's too flat and fugly for you huh? I thought so too.

Hmm... I'm not so sure. Granted they could have been worse (lets all take a look at the Yeager, Springfield and Niagara) but I don't know.. I think they could have been better.
They should have given the Kelvin more of a Miranda Feel, with two nacelles, and an extended saucer. Or maybe a hull that extended aft of the saucer, instead of atop? As for the new Enterprise, if they moved the 'hull' back a bit, and the nacelles weren't attached right at the back, then I could see the improvement.
I also think the Torpedo Tubes should be under the saucer, now on the lower neck.
actually i must say, i just saw it and i must say, i love it. THe hullplating, the weapons, really, i cannot wait to see the movie! Did everyone saw that last movie? where she get hits by a phaser and fires some pulses? Just love it.
