No more deafening than the "J.J. Abrams raped my childhood" crowd.
There's a difference between it possibly having the same spirit/execution as Star Wars, and it actually LOOKING EXACTLY LIKE Star Wars. For the record, I don't subscribe to the former. But you'd be hard-pressed to ignore the latter if the above concept art had come to fruition.
The thing is, it didn't immediately remind me of Star Wars but of the place where Picard and company first meet Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis.
If you went back in time almost 11 years, you'd see that there were lots of folks pointing to that Shinzon reveal as being something straight out of STAR WARS in terms of production design.

In one sense, Zimmerman really did break with tradition on NEM. You had this SW-looking set, and then for what I guess was the Scimitar bridge, you had something that looked like it was shot in a warehouse, possibly where Corman made his 80s SF flicks, but without all the innovative inexpensive touches. That set was a SERIOUS mess.
