Oh! They could have the timepod thinger that was found drifting and damaged in the battle debris- that would be a cool nod.

They have a Hi-Res pick of the Nu-E. Shows more deflector dish detail.

Nice, though the Enterprise pic seems to be a lot darker than previous versions of the same image.

Hmmm... for some reason that hi res pic changed my mind about the nacelles. I didn't mind them, but now, for some reason, they look... uncircumsized.

I actually don't mind the shape of the nacelles. They look like the precursor of the TMP refit engines. If anything, they look a bit "front heavy".

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.

I'm glad that you gave your two cents on everything that could possibly be discussed in relation to the movie. It still won't make me check out Star Ranger 7 though, tough luck.
