One thing about J.J. is that he doesn't show longer beauty shots of the Enterprise. [...] In the Wrath of Khan we got many long extended shots of the ship moving gracefully. I hope they give us longer shots of the entire ship on impulse in the next movie. Anyone agree?
No, really I don't. A bit of starship porn isn't necessarily a bad thing, but those long, long, long beauty-shot sequences in TMP and TWoK were over-indulgent back then
. I think what Abrams & Co. have done with exterior shots of the Enterprise
and other ships is just fine.
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
