(SPOILERS!) About the SuperBowl Trailer...

Will we be getting a new Enterprise?

Perhaps a refit?

One can hope that the next one will be easy on the eyes. If this one bites the dust.

Here's a thought...

We see some ships and shuttles crashing into the city. Could this be a nod to the Wrath of Khan? He (Khan) uses the prefix codes to direct the ships into the cities of Earth.

Re: (SPOILERS!) About the SuperBowl Trailer...

I recently read a Kirsten Beyer Voyager novel where the USS Quirinal, a Vesta-class starship, crashed down on a planet. After weeks of repairs the ship was made spaceworthy again. So I'm kind-of prepared for the idea of the Enterprise being salvagable.

As for a refit - it's possible. If not at the end of this film, at the start of the next. Star Trek XII will likely have a new director. And they just can't resist changing things! Look at the Enterprise-A in STIV, V and VI. It's meant to be the same ship, but goes from shiny white ultra new, to a bigger TOS/TNG hybrid with touchscreen controls and carpet, to dark and worn out, no carpet, with push-buttons again. Star Trek and Into Darkness may be the only two Trek films where the ship and sets look 100% identical between them!

I really like how the Enterprise looks as-is. If they do refit or replace her, it'll be a shame.

Agreed, if they refit or replace the enterprise so quickly it simply just confuses everyone and takes away how significant the Enterprise is in the new franchise.

But new Toys are cool. Kids want to see the New Batmobile or the new Optimus Prime.

A boob job reversal on those nacelles would be nice.

Stuff what kids want, this is about what I want.

Enterprise stays as is getting into adventures for atleast 2 decades, only until then she may finally retire.

I hope so. I never cared for the bridge at all. I think they should make it more retro looking like TOS bridge without making it look like it was built in the 60's. Still have the red railing, real display panels, basically a modern version of TOS bridge.

I would also like to see Star Trek return to TV, that's what it was made for. Weekly episodes with great stories, not the recycled technobabble crap we got with the last few series. Get a whole new set of writers. I never want to hear things like "auto destruct is off line" or "controls are fused, we can't shut it down" and please, no more "We're the only ship in range" or any of the other cop-out lines that were used over and over again.

Having to wait 4 years between movies is too long.

Blow it up or keep it? Do what's best for the story.

But I thought Paramount told Bad Robot they couldn't destroy it when making the first movie?

I'd really like a redesign to make it less bland. That bridge is so sterile and boring, no matter how many lights Abrams shines in my eyes.

Is this your opinion, or do you know that it will be?

Re: (SPOILERS!) About the SuperBowl Trailer...

Given the title, Into Darkness I expect that to include the loss of this Enterprise. When people experience hugh disasters, natural or man made, how often do we hear; We lost everything but we still have our lives.

Yes it'll be sad to see the Ol' Girl go before her time, (actually, not IMO I cannot wait to see its shoddy semblance smashed to smithereens [/butthurt]) but the survivors can be thankful to have survived at all.

I know, Legion: "Nope." There, I saved you the trouble. lol
