Wow. That does put it into perspective. I wonder where that dorsal view came from...

Edit: Found it. It's the new Hotwheels miniature. There's also apparently a new Klingon Bird of Prey design that has a passing resemblance to a cross between Shinzon's Scimitar and the Romulan Valdore from Nemesis.

Sweet. Do you know where the Vengeance schematic came from by chance? I'd like to be able to update the chart I made from the trailer screencap with an actual side view drawing if possible.

[edit] Never mind, Gebirg posted the source above. Thanks.

You're talking about how they made an effects shot. I'm talking about what was mentioned in somebody's post, which if I recall right was about a STORY hinging on the size of the thing.

If the ship was a half-mile long at that speed it would have got chopped going through.
The script was written long before the effects were done. The door was likely noted in the script as being just big enough for the Enterprise to fit through. Nevermind that the little tiny Jenolen was powerful enough to extend her shields far enough to hold open the doors for a ship that was much bigger in comparison.

Re: Starship Size Argument™ thread

The engineering and shuttlebay sets in this film leave no room for argument over whether the nuEnterprise is signficantly larger than the Jefferies ship. It's at least twice the size.

Seriously? Does this really make perfect sense to you?

I don't really care about the size argument but I thought I'd drop these here, maybe they could be of some use?

Impulse engines before refit


After refit

Re: Starship Size Argument™ thread

I thought there might have been some change to the appearance of the exhaust end of the nacelles too, though I might have imagined it. Is there an image of that around?

Not that I'm aware of, yet. Just the impulse engine.

Hmm, the second picture seems a little more refined in general, a new render model maybe?
