of Ain't It Cool News recently visited the editing room and got a sneak peek at early Star Trek XI
As reported by Ain't It Cool News, Knowles saw perhaps seven minutes of the film while on his visit including several interesting scenes.
One scene was of Sarek and Amanda, with a baby Spock. "He showed me a scene of Ben Cross [Sarek] & Winona Ryder [Amanda Grayson]) cradling a baby Spock on the surface of Vulcan," said Knowles. "...There was no dialogue here, and Vulcan wasn’t really there yet – what was there was a great rock formation."
Another scene showed a pre-Enterprise Federation vessel. "The next scene was a really nicely completed visual effects pass of a pre-Enterprise Federation ship from about 25 years before the Enterprise," said Knowles. "The shot began on a small part of the ship, then craned back and over to reveal the ship coming into a larger shot of the ship seemingly orbiting a really angry sun. The shot was absolutely dynamic as the star was seemingly raging – and we cut to the interior of the ship, it was very shadowy and very much like that of an old diesel submarine."
The last shot that Knowles saw was that of a room of Starfleet graduates. "...A scene that looked like it was shot in an enormous hanger," explained Knowles. "There looked to be well over a hundred Starfleet graduates standing in the center of the room, with a couple of shuttlecrafts [old school] that looked like they were ready for boarding... the voice over was basically assigning cadets to the ship they would be serving on."
