For instance, I just went through the trailer again, and all I could find were these two frames of the wreckage over Vulcan. And since, generally, the canon ship classes preceding and contemporary to the Connie are a bit of a grey area, I don't think you're going to see anything you recognise. . .
Is that a Connie with it's saucer blown up and nacelles missing? Just above Sulu's head...
Looks like a Kelvin-type nacelle in the right hand side of the viewscreen in the first frame-grab.

Paramount and JJ abrams are taken a nod to Watchmen and alternate universe like in the comics... The story plot which has Nero changing the time line which creates an alternate universe with more advanced technology than the original Timeline. I think this is an interesting way to update the look of trek with it ships and sets but not change the characters... I like the new look but I think they could have pick a better still of the new enterprise... the wide angle view distorts the design. I really feel that this will relaunch the franchise. I think the story will not flow in a linear story like the all the trek films but fit with JJ Abrams style like mission 3 or lost where they like to jump around in a non-linear way. What better story to fit that than a time travel film... I do like the Kelvin design and I don't have a problem with Enterprise built on the ground. It would be much easier to build than in space and with advance tractor beams or ships they can tug it into space... I know that by building it on earth you can get a better feel how big The Enterpirse is with relations to the land and human walking around her.
