In XII the shuttle bay will be replaced by the paring garage at Disneyland, Sickbay by a walk-in clinic in Burbank and the gym by a basketball hoop mounted on the front of some guys garage.

Re: Stupid Sets

I don't think any Trek production has done a very good job of visually connecting the ship's exterior with its interior. Some of the better efforts have been...

TOS

The very first "fly-in" to the bridge in "The Cage" was pretty effective.

TMP

The drydock scene made the ship seem suitably large, and following Kirk from the travel pod into the hangar area with the open aft doors helped to fuse the interior and exterior pretty well.

VGR

The teaser scene in "Good Shepherd" took us through a Deck 1 window, through the ship and out a Deck 15 window. Pretty cool.

ENT

I didn't watch enough of this show to see any good visual ties between the interior and exterior, but I would imagine that there were at least a few.

STXI

The "outside looking in" shot of the bridge worked pretty well.

Excellent point. Some of the better efforts have been...
Similarly that is what worked for me is in the beginning ST V FINAL FRONTIER the initial arrival of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Uhura in the shuttlecraft inside the massive 1701-A Hangar deck set. They are greeted by Scotty and immediately take the turbolift directly up to the bridge giving a sense of the operations on board the starship.

. . . I actually wouldn't mind using real-life locations like that - but with added set extensions - CGI and real - that cover up the obvious down-to-Earth looking bits, and that add some futuristic looking starship engine/engineering parts to the location sets.
This is an exterior, but it's the same idea. It's a shot from the 1970s Buck Rogers TV series that combines the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles with a matte painting. Still looks pretty cool if you ask me.

Absolutely, that scene from Buck Rogers In The 25th Century 1979-81 series "Awakening" pilot episode that was first released theatrically in 1979 still looks great.

The LA Airport Holiday Inn will be utilized for shots of the crew quarters in the sequel.
Hey, that could actually work.
