Salt Water Nacelles?
 
After seeing the announcement trailer, it looks like the Enterprise will now have salt water-powered nacelles!

Is this true? What will they look like?

;)

All we see is water falling off of a nacelle. But considering a few seconds later we see the Enterprise crash into an ocean, I'm guessing that after it crashes, repairs are done so that it can lift off again.

What I like about the new JJ-prise is that it gets itself into a fiddley situations from the get go, rather than just sit there gracefully in space for 7 seasons.

The ship that crashes into the ocean is not the Enterprise. However, the ship rising from the ocean is.

^ what he said. The NCC-1701 is visible as the ship rises from the ocean, but the nosediving Constitution class ship is not the Enterprise. Also, it's crashing into a river, not an ocean and it looks like it will be completely destroyed by the end of that nosedive.

...And thus we are left wondering whether all these ships end up underwater because the bad guy throws them in, or whether the incidents (and the oceans!) are completely unrelated and the hero ship goes underwater by choice. Or something in between. Perhaps the villain has a thing for fire and water in general, and/or his superhero strength vs. weakness is related to them, and our heroes fight fire with fire (or, in this case, water with water), turning the tables on him by voluntarily taking a dip.

Ah, the suspense...

They should have Scotty saying in this one, "Can I get a towel, please?" in this one, too; kind of make it his new catchphrase!

Then there could be a new marketing line of Scotty Towels!

(EDIT: you also realize that I a being goofy with this thread anyway, kind of making a new version of the "Blue Warp Nacelles?" thread from the last movie!)

The Enterprise runs on cold fusion now.

With all the technobabble that TNG and VOY did in the last moments of almost every show I can be very forgiving of an Enterprise that can survive being in water.

The footage of the ship crashing into the bay area takes away any sense of grand scale of that vessel, looks like a size of a yatch.

Re: Salt Water Nacelles?
 
Regarding the much debated size of the nu-Enterpise, if the vessel stays in the water for an extended period of time (and that water is too cold), are we going to have to address the issue of significant shrinkage?....

Hope they've upgraded the engine room, or there will be talk of watering down the beer in the brewery...

Remember how we had that Star Wars easter egg in the first one, with R2D2 in space?

Maybe now that we go underwater a shot of Jar Jar could be added, swimming among the seaweeds.

Cumberbatch is Jar Jar Binks!

Just a thought. Could this ship actually be crashing upside-down, and it's a new interpretation of the Reliant?
