New IMAX Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

The second IMAX Star Trek into Darkness poster has just debuted. In this poster, The USS Enterprise is being chased by the USS Vengeance. The USS Vengeance, Dreadnought class, is being captained by John Harrison. This is probably an IMAX theater-only poster, and not another fan giveaway. Click on the thumbnail for a larger-sized image.

Is the Vengeance really supposed to be THAT HUGE!? Seems a bit...excessive...to me, and I wonder if perhaps they did take a little artistic license with the ship sizes in that poster...?

After seeing that, all I can hear is Graham Chapman howling "RUN AWAAAAAAY"

They did. In the movie, according to dialogue and FX, it's "only" twice the size of the Enterprise.

Re: New IMAX Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

In my opinion the size of this Vengence ship is the size the Enterprise should be anyway. The size the actual enterprise is is not much bigger than 2-3 space shuttles. The interior volume must be something like a 2 story office building...

For the sake of organization, discussions concerning the sizes of starships will now be conducted in the convenient new Starship Size Argument™ thread, so that it doesn't keep erupting in so many threads not necessarily about that argument.

Thank you,

Re: New IMAX Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

That poster does seem a bit exaggerated. Clearly a marketing scheme to artificially create pre-movie drama, showing our heroes about to be squashed by a ship the size of V'Ger. I guess this shows the Vengeance's "balls" in the front of the secondary hull to be massive torpedo launch arrays.

Re: New IMAX Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

Yeah, it's good. I like it. However I havnt taken it as gospel that the size comparisons are not worth fighting about, this is done to sell tickets.

Average joe audience will see 'massive ship chases not so massive ship firing lasers.'

I have a collection of IMAX 12:01 posters and its a shame they won't be making them any more, they're changing over to a new format/style.

Shame be because I love the dimensions and art work for them, I hope the new ones are as good when they are out.
