Those "wings" are toward the front of the nacelle. Given the angle, looks to be looking forward.
I don't think those 'wings' are toward the front - that image uses a very long 'lens,' compressing everything. I'm pretty sure those are in the typical location of the intercoolers (and frankly I can't say I like them streamlined like that!), which would put the other shot looking forward. Those guys in the distance appear to be standing on the "Gabe Cowl."

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

Based on the sizes of the workers, how large does that make this nacelle?

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

If it's the nacelle, it has to from the back looking to the front. In the head on shots of the Enterprise, you see the intercoolers at the very back. In this shot, there is waaaaay too much space beyond those intercoolers to be from the front - back. These are from the back looking front.

Also to note the intercoolers have a slight decline in curvature starting from the further top point from the camera and coming to the camera.

In the head on shot, from what we can see, this is happening from front to back.

Roughly speaking Dennis ?

I'd guess around 500 / 600 ft long perhaps ?

To the extreame right and left are the intercoolers.

Is it safe to be welding so close to the huge eletro-magnets inside the nacelles ?

* Pondering *




The shot is from the front of the engine, looking toward the back. If we were looking forward, where is the saucer?



Perhaps this is a shot before the nacelles are attached to the secondary hull/saucer section?

Definately Back looking forward.

Look at the front shot, in that pic the intercoolers are sloping down away from the camera, whereas in the close up above there sloping down toward the camera.

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

My theory is, we're standing on top of the engineering section just behind the dorsal looking aft. The port and starboard nacelle attachment nodes are visible sticking out of the main section but without the pylons attached yet. The dome visible in the far middle is the shuttlecraft launch and recovery dome.

Re: Which part of the ship is this?

It's an engine looking towards the back. The top lip of the back end. The wide angle plays tricks with perspective, but there still isn't enough distance from those intercoolers to the front to say we're looking forward.

Again, it's a metaphor for the project being "under construction," so it's dangerous to take things literally, but I'd find it odd the engines were being built on site with the rest of the ship. I'd think an entirely different manufacturer would've made the engines. Must be a helluva shipyard.

I'm not going to call it that.

Maybe the guy is a good artist/designer, I don't know. I've never reviewed his designs.

I just remember him as one of the geekiest, annoying-as-fuck Star Trek fans I have ever seen from "Trekkies."

I'm not going to call it that.

I don't think so, they seem to match the detail on the engines in the saucer shot.


Speaking of the saucer, it seems to have a lot of details from the refit.

I think you're right, these exist. The "Gabe Cowl", though the other shots show a far more smooth design idiom. The shot does seem to be of workers on the rear part of the nacelle, looking towards the saucer (which is too low to be seen at this angle).

Sleek, retro... am I crazy?

Agreed. Biggest dork to be 'adopted" into the franchise since Eric Stillwell.
