Scotty Profile Clip
 
A new clip from Star Trek into Darkness features Scotty. The short clip, barely over a minute in length, shows some new footage from the film. In the clip, Simon Pegg gives fans insight into the character of Scotty. Like the Scotty of the original series, this Scotty likes a wee bit of alcohol. But [...]

More...

I noticed in the clip that there appears to be a new two-level area of the Enterprise.

It appears to be the just above the current bridge (taking up the TOS bridge area), and the old "sensor dome" appears just to be an observation dome now.

Link to Screen Captures.

It appears they're in the Nebula where they meet the USS Vengeance.

I wonder if that dome is just behind the main impulse engine - not the bridge dome.

EDIT: Just checked a screencap and I think its more likely the 'bridge' dome.

From Day 1 when we found out about the Abrams "super-sized" Enterprise, I had always thought that it have been great for a massive two-level bridge in this new area. A command center more fitting for such a massive starship.

Just a thought, if you were to do some scaling of this new area in relation to the rest of the ship, it would almost imply that the Enterprise has been somewhat scaled down. - Yes I know it's opening up an old can of worms again.

Though it looks like they just gutted/reworked the bridge set to make this new set.

Definitely a lot bigger than the Enterprise in TOS and TMP.:biggrin:

I'm not so sure. There are multiple corridors extending from it -- at least one behind Kirk that looks very long. I doubt the area shown would fit under the bridge dome... but I suppose that reason hasn't stopped them before.

As someone else pointed out, it would probably make more sense for this to be the dome at the back of the saucer.

that's not the enterprise bridge dome. there were some great hi-res images of the 09 bridge a while back and there's a big ball shaped object that is suspended in the center of the dome with no balcony.

i will see if i can find those shots.

found them.

I like the touch of using a communicator like a cell phone.

Compare also the bridge panorama which was on the official site from the time of the first movie:

Whatever we're looking at in the screencaps linked here...

... it's somewhere other than on the bridge - looks to be a larger, more open area.


Liking the Scotty clip, though, and liking Pegg's take on the character more each time I see something new.

It can only be the dome above the bridge. The dome in the bridge set itself does not correspond to the dome on the model. What other transparent domes are there on the nuEnterprise? The one next to the impulse engine is too small. It can only be the transparent dome ontop of the saucer section IMO

I'm with those that say it's not the bridge.
It just doesn't fit with what we've seen of it and especially with that large corridor behind Kirk.

The corridor and the obvious balcony running all the way around above him.
