At 1:1000, the Discovery would be 29½" long. Round2 is supposed to have one at that scale out at some point in the not-too-distant future. The Enterprise herself from that show is about 1.5 times the size of the TOS original. The Discovery is actually longer than a Soveriegn-class starship at 750.5m long.
If you're basing the Discovery length off of (780 ridiculously) long meters, that puts the 1:1000 length at 78 cm (30.7").

Where are you getting the 780m from? Only length figure I've seen is the one I gave.

*lol* Fair. I'm getting the 1:2500 Discovery to retrofit into an origianl-canon-appropriate 1:1000 Horizon class (NCC-1000 block -- none of this late-to-the-party "Crossfield class" crap).

OK I read most of this thread... and here's my take.

I very much disagree with the statement that through the generations what is core star trek is unidentifiable... Its actually pretty easy. Its only been the recent versions of Trek that have blurred the lines and that is why some people hate it. To me I look at it as good sci-Fi - but Bad Star Trek. Disco season 2 was a lot better than Season 1... but still bad trek. I hope that Season 3 will be better still. Picard was better than Disco - but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have serious issues with the writing, and plot holes big enough to drive a truck through... again it was decent Sci-Fi - but bad Star trek.

As far as the new proposed series... I think its an awesome premise, but have little faith in the writers and producers being able to make good Star Trek, their track record is abysmal. if I were CBS I WOULD NOT fund this series and when secret hideouts contract is up use the premise on a show with different producers. Sure it meas we don't get more trek for while - but we really haven't been getting Trek IMO for quite a while. I'd rather wait and get a great show, then not and get a so so- to bad show.

All that being said This Disco version of the Enterprise rocks. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the silver color - but the design is pretty great.... IMO. I too am going to disregard the scale as stated and choose to believe that this model will be in scale with my old AMT/ERTL kit...

i think people make an assumtion that it's silver. screen caps and boxart look grey to me. people assumed the nx-01 refit was silver at first, too.
everyone's got their own idea of what "mettalic grey" means i reckon.
(nx-01 refit was intended to be classic grey/green not eaglemoss gaudy siver lol)
end off topic
