I'm not entirely convinced. Yes the technologies used were less advanced but the NX class looked too much like a 24 century scout vessel. Some of the races of Tos were re-introduced like the andorians klingons and vulcans who held back the humans because they weren't ready to explore the galaxy just yet. The characters weren't that interesting. They must have been the most uninteresting group ever. All though t'pol was nice but she was more eye candy. The captain archer was alittlebit dull and not verymemorable. My problem with it is that we already know what happens with the federation. There we're too many time travel episodeswhichdisrupted thecontinuity. I believe that they should have downplayed the look and feel of the enterprise a bit. This is how my enterprise should looklike.
A single nacelle design. A small saucer section with beneath a smallersquaredbulk section. underneath that, one nacelle, that stretches out under the bulk. The crewquartersshould be brown white with many large rooms withbunk beds. The engineering section should be small with a giant square construction with in themiddlesomeglowingplasma. The bridge should besquareshaped with large stations that reach the sealing. There should be a star chart screen. A com station with buttons. abigchair withbuttonson the sides. One helm stationwhichis wide with many buttons and asmallscreen with flickering lights. The ship itself should move very slowly and it could take time to slow down after warp speeds. The ship can shape alittlebit. The captain could press a buttonwhichwarns the crew of high warp speeds. The phasers should be located at the front of the saucer section an should be able to move around with manual control from the captain ifnecessarily. The torpedo room should be small and the torpedoes are manually inserted in a tube. The transporter room should be just four places an take more time then usual to beam people. The uniforms should be sweaters in blue yellow and brown with adistinctiveblack collar lines that run down and insignia ranks on the arms. The pants should be black with side pockets and high black boots for the women skirts with boots.
