Do we know yet what exactly got refit on the Enterprise at the end
 
Still haven't seen any updates regarding just what was refit aside from the impulse deck, tail fins and possibly bridge and upper decks cap (unless that is really only a forced perspective distortion)
I haven't seen any thing else from the stills or reviewing nor to my knowledge has ilm released any pics or data
Any scoops?

The phaser banks were different, too - they looked flat with circular hatches presumably for the banks to pop up into place when needed.

As far as I know, no info has been released about any other changes made. I think they expect us to wait until 2016...

Seems like a waste of money. Why have people spend additional man hours to change the ship model of there is no point to it?

^Because you know engineers, they love to change things. ;)

The ship was smashed and needed repair so why not update systems with the latest tech available. Research and Development never ceases.

I was talking about the real world VFX. Why waste production budget on that?

How? Do they sell two different toys? Did anybody outside this forum actually notice the changes?

Same answer JarodRussell; "The ship was smashed and needed repair so why not update systems with the latest tech available." In universe it is called a refit.

While I do not necessarily approve of all the changes, especially to the Impulse deck, that they bothered to make some upgrades while the ship was in the shop adds a touch more realism than if they'd rolled out the same old design again.

Are we now going to flip out because they took the time and expense to throw anyone who cares about that sort of thing a bone?

How many Shatner/Nimoy movies carried the same ship over to the next film without changes?

None.

I watched it with a Not A Fan who noticed the changes to the impulse engines.

I didn't notice any changes. I'm not so familiar with either version of the ship that I could tell - I've seen both twice, four years apart.

I actually miss the dual impulse deck. It reminded me of the TMP Enterprise.

I noticed. None of the other six people I saw the movie with did.

I liked that they did it, but part of me feels like it's a bit too soon.

It was such a small change. Kind of a, "huh," moment and not much more for me. Maybe it's the new type of impulse engine to be installed on a sister ship that's being built. Might as well put the newest stuff onto the Enterprise while you have the chance before it heads off to deep space.

At least the warp nacelles didn't change to red-orange.
