Anybody else notice that the damage to the Enterprise saucer seems as if someone purposely tried to blow the ship’s name off the hull?
I was thinking the same thing, it's a long shot, but could it be another ship? 1707?
My bet is that the ship falls into the atmosphere but regains control before she crashes.
Nah, it's definitely the Enterprise. After watching and reviewing the full HD version, it is indeed the E.
Here you can see what I mean though...it's like the name itself was targeted specifically. Whether it was by the attacker or just the SFX guys thinking it'd be cool is of course yet to be seen. Makes me wonder though if Harrison is indeed April, and April is indeed a former Enterprise captain...maybe he'd have reason to want the name scratched off the hull?
I also find it odd how the hull plates around the registry are so misaligned. I know they were going for the look of the ship really being made of different pieces but that's pretty drastic.
Kirk asks "Who are you?" which means it's not Gary, nor April and not any former crew member.
Could still be April, but not in a form by which Kirk recognizes him (i.e. much younger)
