Yup. The "The Menagerie" version has the spikes, but it also has glowing ramscoops, as opposed to the nail-polish-dark ones in "Mirror, Mirror".

It's a damn shame that the re-somethinged episodes are significantly cropped versions. I'd much rather see the eps restored to full original length, and perhaps played 7 % faster for modern market. There probably isn't any hope of getting the cut scenes re-processed for the DVD releases...

Okay, now that we've seen the new Gorn ship, let's revise my list:

1. The Antares.

2. Harry Mudd's Class-J cargo ship (I just hope they don't re-use the Horizon from ENT, although I don't think they will)

3. I could have sworn there was a space battle between the Enterprise and unseen Klingon ships at the beginning of "Errand of Mercy" but I guess I was wrong.

4. The Orion ship in "Journey to Babel."

5. The Klingon scout ship in "Friday's Child."

6. The Woden in "The Ultimate Computer."

7. Again, I thought there was a scene where they found the Beagle's wreckage (without an accompanying FX shot).

8. One I missed before: The S.S. Aurora from "The Way to Eden." I hope they will replace the "Backwards-Tholian-with-Federation-like-nacelles" ship with something more interesting.

9. Astral Queen from "The Conscience of the King".

Just because they wont use othere people's models doesn't stop them from creating their own cgi model of a similar ship. Otherwise they wouldn't have shown the CGI Enterprise because there was a connie seen in Enterprise too.

That's silly reasoning since the Enterprise is the "hero" ship of the show and the people over at TOS remastered could could probably give two shits about what ships appeared on Star Trek: Enterprise. Personally I too would want to see a different design for Mudd's ship.

I think it would make nice continuity for the J-class to be the same as the one in Ent, but a totally new, TOS style ship would be far more exciting.

As for the scenes cut from the syndicated episodes, CBS has given the impression that the episodes will be released in full on DVD, including those missing minutes.

I thought that the reason why the Enterprise was there to ferry Karidian et. al was because the Astral Queen never showed up.

I got to thinking about this early this morning during a slow period at work. It hit me that it would be fun if the new design was based on the old "Leif Ericson" model AMT did back in the 60s. Seeing as Matt Jefferies designed the model, I think it would make a better fit for the show's look than a modern "from scratch" design.

Oh - yeah - it didn't?? Did Kirk speak to someone and say 'oh no they can come with us'?

An entire clique of modelers have been working on that for a couple of years now.

I like it! Much better than the 60's Christmas ornament.

Looks like a concept sketch rather than anything from the episode, but if they're going for that more complex look then I approve. If the balls had been smooth it would've looked too simplistic and flat(a bit like the Enterprise's hull did in the early remastered eps...). These hints of detail and scale are an improvement and will look snazzy in HD.

I had heard that there is an edit available that isn't cut for time, but the networks are obviously not going to use that when they should have their advertising instead.

So, why exactly does Balok have such a huge ship? It seems so tiny inside, and the impression I've had is that he's the only person on board. Is it an inverse TARDIS or something?

Just to look impressive, probably.
