New STID pics

Some publicity pics from Empire magazine and the STID app. TrekMovie theorizes the white thing is a photon torpedo.





I just want to know what's up with these weird uniforms Bones, Kirk, and Carol Marcus are wearing. Starfleet's going crazy with uniform variants in the Abramsverse or something.

Didn't see those other two pics. Nice Klingon disruptor Uhura is sporting!

Re: New STID pics

The uniforms are flight jackets according to Trekmovie.com, worn over the standard duty uniform. Those bits of colour are clear "windows" showing the department colours underneath. I suspect they're just as good for away teams on chilly planets.

The disruptor is excellent, very true to the originals. I like the Klingon bead curtains too!

Yes there are a lot of costume changes in this movie! In contrast to Generations where they could only afford to make two new DS9 style costumes for Picard and Data whilst poor Riker had to wear Avery Brooks' uniform which was clearly too small for him

I don't know, the person who made them clearly dishonored the building they were in by making them so flimsy

Well it does say "Phot" on the side, so I'd say it's a safe bet. It also looks like it says CVN65 on one of the winglets; if so that's a odd little shout out--unless it's a wink and nod to someone that team knows.

If it is a photon, I like it. As much as I liked the chiklet of doom designs, this looks like it could be some form of a missile weapon.

Re: New STID pics

Maybe the difference in shape is because Starfleet has reverse-engineered or based designs on Nero's weapons? It does look a little like one of the Narada's cluster missiles.

The writers did say that scans of the Narada have been influencing Starfleet since the Kelvin was attacked.

I'm looking at the thing and thinking "Multitool": Swap the misson packages around and you've got a multi-use case for anything from a photon to a spy-drone.

It's probably a reference to the carrier USS Enterprise that recently got decommissioned and set to the scrappers.

I know, which is what's so out of place to me about it unless it's a shout out to a friend/family member. I would think if it was a reference to the carrier, that'd tack her hull number onto a starship or shuttle not a torpedo.

Dollars to donuts it's some kind of proto-conception of a Genesis-like device, like some kind of weapon that reduces all living matter to subatomic particles.
