Re: New STID pics

I'm not convinced it's a photon torpedo. I think it might be the Starfleet equivalent of an unmanned drone, particularly since what we saw from the KRE-O Toys that included an Enterprise with 'fighter pods'. It looks like it has a separate set of engines in the back, which you wouldn't expect if it was just a torpedo or probe.
The KRE-O toys included a volcano playset, and a Klingon Bird of Prey, both of which we know appear in the movie. So it stands to reason that the so called 'fighter pods' will appear as well. This may very well be them.

NOT....
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.
What if its a Helios Device from the upcoming NuTrek game, that sounds kind of like a proto-Genesis Device.

I've been leaning toward it being the Starfleet version of a predator drone.

Re: New STID pics

Hmmmm ... does anyone else see a dead or unconscious Klingon laying on the ground in photo 3?

Naturally, his face is turned away.

Could be. But I don't know anything about the game.

Re: New STID pics

It is not a photon torpedo. It is a transport device that carries and transports Gary7 into the story....

I hadn't caught that. It looks like he's on his back with his head facing up and wearing one of those helmets.

Re: New STID pics

Would "CVN-65" (USS Enterprise which was recently inactivated) be an indication that is the April´s ship?

I'd think it's just an Easter egg. But who knows?

Do you think you could post here to explain how you "marked/square around the post you are replying to?

I see that it makes it easier to understand replies when you see the original post.
Gsam, you use the "Quote" button under the response to which you wish to reply.

I'm all for expanding the fan base and understand that this isn't "my parents star trek" but I think that with this being an altered time line that pairs spock and uhura then that leaves kirk needing a close companion. You can take the definition of close companion to mean anything you want. I feel that with spock having uhura in his life that the dynamic between he and kirk is very different than in TOS. I think that he needs bones because with the change in dynamic between he and spock that kirk needs someone at his side to confide in and such.

And frankly, I think that bones and even pike have much more of Jim's best interests at heart than spock does.
If you look at the structure of Star Trek 2009, that is what happened, though: Bones is Kirk's friend who questions Spock's decisions regarding Kirk, while Uhura is Spock's friend who questions Kirk's decisions. They are basically equals in the role they play. The problem comes from people who willfully misunderstand the structure of the film and want things to stay the same as they were in the 1960s: and thus, we get Star Trek "Fans" who actually say things like this (actual quotes):

"Once again Bones is relegated to N04 behind behind Uhura.
How annoying. This Uhura has nothing to offer over the quite brilliant Karl Urban’s ‘Bone’s yet they keep pushing her up the pecking order. grrrr"


"Where is Bones? Who is that scary woman on behind? Oh, I almost forgot that this ugly creature is “Uhura” now. And she is now substitute for McCoy. I don’t buy this shit."

"Uhura gets the cover and Bones gets pushed to panel two with Scotty. I know why the marketing people do it, I know: she’s female, of race, good looking, played by a well-known actress. Even so, Bones and Scotty are far more important to the franchise (and more well-known publicly) than Uhura. Uhura is traditionally down in second class with Sulu and Chekov."
You make some valid points and I think that overall I am in agreement with your assessment of the dynamics of the characters in the Nutrek verse.

The basis of my comment was in response to posts about Uhura replacing Bones as the "new" member of the trio. Your reasoning is basically the same as mine and I myself, am comfortable with the importance of Bones to the character development of Kirk in Nutrek.

P.S. thanks to all who responded to my request for assistance in using "quotes".

Can anyone make out what it says on the nose? Look directly to the right of Marcus' head. It could be numbers but I can't tell.

Seems legit.

Or it could be their way of saying "Hi there!" from the people of Earth.
