Yet another example of the "designy" attitude that came to infect TREK.

I know a lot of people feel that the TOS Enterprise had a panel pattern which was “really” painted over to create the clean, smooth finish we know. Some latter-day productions (such as the Remastered episodes) have even retroactively applied a panel pattern to the hull.

Me, I like the idea that the ship’s hull really was completely smooth and seamless, be it either due to advanced panel-welding/assembly techniques, or maybe even some kind of 3-D hull-printing technique.
