The video posted below features famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson standing up and passionately expressing his opinion at the Starship Smackdown panel at the end of Comic-Con this year. What about you might ask? Which was the better ‘space ship’, the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 or the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A? The original Federation vessel from the TV series vs the Robert Wise helmed movie version, the refit version. In my honest opinion he chose the correct Starship and apparently the judges on the panel agreed that he did as well.
