References to other Trek MASSIVE SPOILERS!!
 
Hi All,

SPOILERS BELOW: -

...

...


Apart from all the references to the earlier Trek movie featuring Khan, I also spotted: -

The NX-01 amongst Admiral Bastard's desk models.
Section 31

Any other nods anyone noticed?

Carol Marcus's mother's maiden name was Wallace. Possibly a shout out to Janet Wallace.

Christine Chapel is mentioned.

The NX-01? Nope, not 'just' the NX-01. Besides famous airplanes, rockets and shuttles, there was Cochrane's Warp ship, The Ring Ship Enterprise, The Warp 5 NX-Alpha from Fight or Flight, The NX-01 and what looks like a miniature of the USS Vengeance.
Very ballsy from Marcus' part!

Right next to the NX-Alpha from ENT: "First Flight" and the Ringship Enterprise XCV-330 from background art in The Motion Picture and Enterprise. I think I also saw a model of ENT's "warp delta" from the opening credits but am not 100% sure.

I loved that they managed to answer the four-year fan debate about Enterprise's place in both timelines with something so minor that fitted perfectly into the scene.

Too many to count, including them taking Harry Mudd's ship to Kronos and McCoy's mention of the Gorn. I loved them all right up until a certain someone yelled a certain something that took me right out of the film with it's unimaginable awfulness. But it's got it's own thread.:p

That bit I didn't understand. I thought the Vengeance was supposed to be a super secret warship? On the other hand, the place where it was docked wasn't particularly well hidden, or even guarded for that matter!

Plausible deniability. "You say I'm building a secret dreadnought warship? No son, it's a model. I have a hobby - see?" *points to desk*
:p

Also: I want that model! According to the credits, they were provided by Quantum Mechanix. Hopefully it'll be available soon.

They mentioned meeting at Daystrom (which struck me as being a bit off, timeline wise but I'm sure there are ways to explain it).

Re: References to other Trek MASSIVE SPOILERS!!
 
I think Pike got a message to meet Daystrom, not meet at Daystrom. I could be wrong, though.

But IIRC, he designed his famous duotronic computer at a very young age, and spent the rest of his life trying to equal that feat. Since IRL we have 17-year-old computer whizzes coming up with revolutionary new cancer detection techniques, it's plausable he's already got buildings named for him, if that was the case in the movie.

The conference room is called Daystrom Room. I think it was Admiral Marcus who called reinforcements to the "Daystrom Conference Room" during the attack.

I hated those ships. They were nothing like a Klingon design should have been, and sure they were no D4 class! And the braking sound during the "won't fit" scene was just too cartoonish!

I thought they were alright as little Klingon fighters go, they clearly were more in the BoP class than a "cruiser" but they did remind me a bit of some of the Klingon designs from ENT.

The Klingons themselves were an interesting riff on the familiar look, much tougher looking than their TNG-era cousins for sure, and a nice little introduction if they become larger players in Trek XIII. Though, with them now off on the 5 year mission, the door is open for a deep-space story.
