Whats going on with the gravity there I wonder.
Additionally, how does gravity plating work [isn't that how they create artfiical gravity in Trek] in such large open spaces?
There's probably some technobabble explanation that I hope they don't bother with.

In any case, either the plates are screwed up and switching the gravity around the ship, or they're not functioning. If they're not working, the ship must be close enough to Earth to be affected by her gravity. To be most accurate (within the sci-fi tech bounds they've created), it would be nice (but was probably beyond the budget) to see brief moments of zero gravity, too, as the ship pitches and rolls down into the atmosphere.

Either way, I don't care how it works, it is amazingly cool and it makes sense for it to do that in space. It makes the whole concept of artificial gravity feel more real to me. Neat idea. Good job.
Well, in TOS we had magical 'lighting panels,' if you recall only to be retro converted back to light bulbs by TNG.

I gottcha. Don't ask too many questions how the magic works - enjoy the ride.

Yea. As I understand it they used the Budweiser facility in the San Fernando Valley, CA.
That would be this one.
Yup I pass engineering about twice a week on the 101

Holy hell! That was fun! How they spun the whole corridor set to make that happen I'd love to know. Can't wait to see this movie.

That Engine Room/Deck is ridiculous!!!!
How many wide open spaces and walkways with deadly drops below does one starship need? Are Kirk and Scotty going to the Omega 13 Device?

Some info on that

Of course, much of the interior of the ship still had to be built as sets on stages, but even those were expanded for the sequel. In the first "Star Trek," the different sections like the bridge, transporter room, and medical bay were built separately, and the camera had to cut to go from one to the other.
But this time, they were connected to create one seamless ship. “On this film, we really had the full playground,” said Chris Pine, who one again plays Captain Kirk. “We had construction guys working seven days a week, 24 hours a day, just so we could have this totally immersive world to be in."


They also built sets that could mechanically tilt for a sequence where the damaged Enterprise begins to fall out of the sky. Simon Pegg said, "It was all done with wires combined with a tilting set, so we were actually, literally running on the walls sideways... It was enormous fun to shoot, to constantly be reorienting our sense of what’s up and what’s down."

*sigh* Oh well.... I was hoping for a 'new' interpretation of the engine room that would have been a walk back from the brewery & city-block-size-catwalks-and-tubs set (they are on the Enterprise, not inside the Death Star nor within the Great Machine of the Krell), but I guess I'll have to live with it.

Yeah, I was REALLY hoping for a real engineering set this time too.

(Hard to imagine that they went from such a compact and simple engine design and small engineering in Archer's time, to the HUGE, complex, beer brewery and caverous engineering areas just a century - or less - later.)

At the rate they're releasing clips I feel like the whole movie will be released by the time it opens.
