Thought it looked familiar!  Very McQuarrie cut about the jib.  And Secondary Hull:

Bryan Fuller stated at the Star Trek panel that this new series will not
be episodic.

I very much like the name Discovery for a Starfleet ship.

As for the ship herself...I was never that keen on the McQuarrie/Ken Adam delta-wing design, but I much prefer this one to the Ryan Church reboot version. Which, I admit, is not saying much.

I can't say I like this design.
Perhaps it is 'retro' but I would not call it retro in a good way. (yes, I recognize it may take inspiration from the Phase 2 ship but I did not like that one, the Constitution Refit was definitely an improvement on the discarded design, and the Galaxy class)

I take the designs from the Original Series, TNG, DSN, and VGR over this one. Even the Earth starships design in Enterprise look nicer.
Designers for Star Trek media and fans have designed better looking ships.

Nothing wrong with the name though.

It looks as if they were trying to literalize the insignia shape into a Federation starship.

Other people like to compare it to a mix between Federation and Klingon/Romulan designs, but I think there is more of a Cardassian ship design in this. (the colors for one)
The secondary hull reminds me a lot of the Galor and Keldon class.

Mr Byrne, what do you dislike about this design?

If the rumors that are going around right now are correct and this series takes place before the Original Series my interest in watching it is also gone.

It is not that I don't like the 23th century but this like the reboot feels that producers and writers only want to work with what is known and safe.

I think this series, Star Trek Beyond, and the fourth movie (yep it is already planned) are going to determine if the Franchise will make it to its 75th anniversary.
My hopes for it are slim.

First look at the USS Discovery:

*sigh* The NX-01 "5th Season Refit" looks a lot more "Star Trek" to my eyes than that.

Pass.

I'm just glad I have another rebooted space franchise to look forward for next year...

Um, I'm not totally clear what 'episodic' means. So the new Trek will be one long story told over the season(s)?

I don't mind the saucer section. The rest of the ship is terrible.
