Just a thought. Could this ship actually be crashing upside-down, and it's a new interpretation of the Reliant?
I've kind of been thinking the same thing... I really looks upside down to me.

The front of the Engines look like TOS Movie era nacelles, but upside down. Weird how curved the support pylons are, too.

So instead of battling in the Mutara Nebula, they battle in the ocean!

Re: Salt Water Nacelles?

Does this mean the nuEnterprise's sombrero will have to be covered up by a scuba helmet?

Underwater nacelles means the new PEZ dispensers will have to have Lloyd Bridges from Sea Hunt as Bussard collectors/endcaps.

With all the technobabble that TNG and VOY did in the last moments of almost every show I can be very forgiving of an Enterprise that can survive being in water.

Shields + structural integrity fields = water lol.

don't think the pylon is supposed to be curved. given the flames/ smoke from the engine i'd safely assume the pylon has buckled from the impact/ crash.

Re: Salt Water Nacelles?

It's a good thing George and Gracie exist in the other timeline and not this one. Between the Narada's drill blasting into the water and frying everything in its path and the debris and ships falling from the sky in this film they would be toast by now.

The nuEnterprise has curved pylons. These look like a very similar curve to me. I don't think the pylons are damaged.
