Here's a stray thought:


Would they spill that big of a plot point in a comic after spending years carefully hiding what the villain actually is?

Lauched earlier and destroyed quickly enough in order the start construction of the constitution class Enterprise to fit the jj time line?
That would mean they actually name the ships before building them. Do we have any evidence of that?

Ignoring the Enterprise-A (which may or may not be a new build), do we have any evidence that Starfleet doesn't? The US Navy certainly does (see the Enterprise CVN-80 - named and registered, not scheduled to begin building until 2018).

We'd also have to ignore the Enterprise-E, which launched a little over a year after the destruction of her predecessor.

We don't know what's a big plot point and what's not, as has been the case with all the issues of "ST Ongoing". Some things are easter eggs, some things are deliberate red herrings.

(unless Starfleet drastically cut their shipbuilding numbers compared to the Prime universe).
Yeah, they had to cut back on the numbers they produced, since they decided to dump resources into making the ones they did build freakishly large...

By today's standards, or did you really want JJ to put a 60s era TOS bridge on the big screen?

Yeah, I didn't really see where it was that much more high tech looking than most modern sci-fi stuff.

Arguably lower tech, given the barcode scanners & the blinding arrays of lights that keep you from seeing anything.

^Lower tech than pictures hung around the bridge masquerading as viewscreens in standby mode?

Re: Countdown to Darkness - Review and Discussion

I think having the Enterprise be higher tech than the 60's version is fine. This is supposed to be an alternate timeline after all. But I do wish the Kelvin had been very retro. TOS style on the big screen would have been beautiful.

Why not? It could have been around and destroyed anytime since 2233.

I would prefer the ships scale roughly to their sizes in the Prime universe
