Would your workplace happen to be the Lawrence Livermore Lab? We did hear about filming there, though I don't think any details beyond the fact that filming occurred (unless one counts a few pics of Pegg, Pine and Cumberbatch stopping off at Hooters on the way back to their hotel in SF.)
Yep.

They were filming at the National Ignition Facility. That's basically a couple football fields worth of big banks of modular looking stuff used for generating 192 lasers that feed into a huge sphere jokingly called the Death Star (it's ten meters in diameter). They're trying to achieve fusion.

Don't know what the script needs it for, but I can imagine a lot of things that would look cool when compressed or taken from the right angle. Lots of visual possibilities. Lots of activity when they were there, too, with obviously places screened and roped off.

(Thanks, Temis!)

It's gonna be so cool watching the movie and going "Oh, that's what so-and-so was talking about/thats why they're wearing those uniforms/that's why they're filming there"

TrekMovie published a brief overview of the facility about a month ago - includes photos and a "How NIF Works" clip.

Should be interesting to find out what they used. Lots of visual possibilities, as you say, and some of them pretty much unique to that location.

I wouldn't mind too much if the Enterprise engineering was refit to look like LLNL rather than a Bud brewery.

I tend to agree but while there are pipes for Africa, it does seem a little light in the tank department.

I suspect the engine room will be a set this time around (apparently the sets are multilevel and interconnected this time, allowing a seamless walkthru shot between the bridge, the turbolift, the "plaza" and the sickbay), and there'll be zero explanation given as to why it looks different!

Re: One-year countdown thread!

No explanation was given for the changes in engineering in TOS, or between TMP and TWOK. Granted, going from Budweiser to Livermore is a bit more drastic than that, but it would fit the look of the ship better overall.

I suspect it could be the engine room of another Federation ship (perhaps Peter Weller's ship? With Alice Eve and Benedict Cumberbatch as his senior staff?). The USS Kelvin engine room scenes were filmed in a disused power plant on Long Island.

Other side of the continent, actually, at the Long Beach Generating Station, adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles.
