Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

"Explaining how they modified it"
and
"Telling us that it was modified"

...are two different things

All they need to do is tell us that the ship was modified, with a general description of that modification (at most); they don't need to go into detail as to how it was done. Something to the effect of Scotty saying "I modified the shields", or something like that.

"Scotty, will that work?"
"Aye, sir - it will."
"But... "
"Captain... it'll work. I give you my word as an engineer."


Boom. Done.

Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

I won't accept things unless the Enterprise springs a leak. I will boycott the movie if there is no leaky Enterprise. This is non-negotiable. I will also spread bad word of mouth. I know three people who won't see the movie just because the Enterprise won't leak while underwater. Consider the implications.

I need to take a leak.

It has to be the middle one. Canon demands no less.

Well, we know he found the Enterprise to be exciting, perhaps this is where he falls deeply in love with her. ;-)

I suspect that link is being blocked by TrekCore, as nothing was showing up in your post, but you really aren't supposed to hotlink images from sites which aren't your own, anyway.

The pic you wanted is on this page, fourth row, third column, if I'm not mistaken.
I wasn't aware. My apologies.

Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

My guess is this is the movie where Scotty earns his title of "Miracle Worker."

And, yeah, they'll explain it. If not they know we'll burn up the Internet trashing the film.

Re: Will there be an explaination for how enterprise can go underwater

I wonder if Scotty will finally get the towel that he needed after the Enterprise rises from the water.

Also, I have this crazy theory that that scene will serve ad the Enterprise's grand entrance.

Totally agree. I love that Abrams and company are constantly trying to do things with the Enterprise that is completely unexpected.

Built on Earth. Great! I was tired of seeing the usual spacedock starship porn. Hiding underwater. Why not? After all, the ship is built to withstand intersteller radiation and all sorts of space nastiness (yeah, that's an official term) so as not to kill the crew inside. It should be able to stand a little pressure from a few cubic feet of water.

Does there need to be an explanation? No. TREK got too hung up on explain everything with BS technobabble. Better just have a one liner on it and move one. What TREK doesn't need is more technobabble. Those days are long gone. We've moved on.
