art imitates life

I was just watching star trek the motion picture for the first time ever (I liked it! it was slow but interesting! totally saw the ~~twist~~ coming from lightyears away but that was alright!), and you know how there’s this scene where they have the different enterprise evolutions drawings in the background: 

And I noticed this one in particular: 

This is the USS-Enterprise XCV-330, for those of you interested. 

So I thought “huh, that looks familiar, actually”. And it is, because quite recently NASA unveiled concept art for their first ever warp-capable ship (once they figure out how to do warp safely), and it looks like this: 

It’s called the IXS Enterprise. 

NASA once again confirmed for being giant nerds.
