Who says that after world war 3 all country's and capital city's were devastated and then rebuilt??
If we see a city in any Trek show, we can assume it wasn't totally destroyed in that war, otherwise it wouldn't be there. It would take at least a couple of hundred years to completely rebuild a major city from the ground up, especially after World War III.
The novel Lost Era: The Sundered said one of the first nuclear bombs deployed in WWIII detonated over London, destroying it and killing everyone. The more recent DTI: Watching the Clock (which puts DTI HQ in Greenwich, London) retconned it into a high-altitude detonation which knocked out London's power via EMP but didn't obliterate the city.

Why San Francisco/Oakland? Why not the entire Bay Area? It's pretty much one large megacity from the Golden Gate to South San Jose and around the South Bay and up north again to San Pablo Bay.

You really should include the entire metro area. Take Atlanta. The largest city in the south that hosted the Olympics, has a professional baseball, football, basketball, and hockey team.

The "City of Atlanta" only has a population of 420,000. That makes it smaller than Fresno, Mesa, and Virginia Beach.

However, look at the number of the people living in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. 5.4 million. That puts her up in 9th place between Miami and Boston.

The "City of San Francisco" has a population of only 805,000. However since it's the cultural center of the area, the San Francisco metro includes San Jose (which is larger) and Oakland and has 7.6 million people.

Not anymore. It moved to a proper hockey city--Winnipeg.

Since it was bumped, I'll quote myself from the other thread

There was some talk a few weeks ago about the flags. I noticed they seem to have fixed it, they're not upside down anymore.

That's interesting. Were real flags replaced by CG? Or were the flags CG all along?

I guess that way they can ensure they flutter in just the right way.

The second image is also slightly better lit and clearer, the first is probably an earlier pass/render, the second image for the new trailer and completed film being corrected in several ways.
