Empire Magazine pics!
 
Empireonline has some new pics from the movie.

...didn't know if it was okay to attach the actual pics.

Oh, this isn't going to end well (with the haters)... the view screen IS a window :D I love it!

You know, I think we can see part of the saucer right outside. I see an NCC. So, it's a window.

I like to know why they decided to go that route. It might be very, very cool if they can throw all kind of other images up there, like I see the HUD is, so then you get a window and a Viewscreen.

Hmm, either B4 or 84.

OMG, you're right - it is a window!

On TOS, to me at least, it was so clearly not a window.

Can anyone post/attach the other pics - just for the sake of furthering the discussion?

Thanks in advance!

Well, i suppose a window in lieu of a viewscreen qualifies as "older tech".

I guess the question is - is it transparent aluminum or a force field?

A WINDOW?!?!

"Captain! enemy ship approaching from starboard 100,000 km away"
"On screen...oh wait. Turn ship and get us telescopes"

Well, I think it's a window with capability to show images as well.

OMG! He really does look the part!! :techman: But my big question is though, why does Kirk have a black shirt???

It's the freakin 23rd century guys. If they have warp drive and transporter technology, I think it's also safe to assume they have the technology to switch a clear window into a viewscreen whenever they want. lol

Apparently that's "relevant" to the plot... he probably tears his gold one.
