The one in the refit enterprise was better because it looked like something was actually swirling inside. I don't know why they couldn't just duplicate that for TNG.
It was a pretty complicated lighting effect using specialized and proprietary equipment. It wasn't a simple thing to duplicate, and may have been too costly for a TV budget. Sure, Voyager eventually managed to create a similar effect, but close inspection suggests it's a simpler approximation.

Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

I had no problem with the brewery engine room. JJ went out to set a sense of scale within the uss supersize, and I liked it.

The new addition of the realistic to today's standards of science and engineering, worked well, however, looked a little small compared to the rest of the enterprise.

The interior, however, was an amazing set/location scene. Just looked advanced yet basic, and the scene with the kicks just seemed to last forever.

I liked it.

Out of the entire film, the master piece that is Galaxy Quest, the best Star Trek movie never made, it was Alan Rickmans delivery of that line that cracked me up the most.

LOL.

Thing is, JJ is hiding the real warp core in the brewery somewhere, just as uhura and kirk are making their way to the real 'what trekkies want' core, paramount drops the movies. Lol.

Btw, Carl Spock lives. I remember the TOS caption contest years ago. Can't believe you have him as your avatar still.

What ever happened to shatmandu? He kinda disapeared.

Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

Carl Spock is like a pair of jeans or a baggy t-shirt. He'll never go out of style. He's better than all of us combined.

Shatmandu? I'm still wondering about that myself. I miss that guy. If another poster knows how he's been doing they haven't posted anything that I'm aware of.

Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

Carl Spock. Just can't get over him still around. Must be what, four or five years ago now? Mental.

Just made my evening seeing that.

Shatmandu was a breath of fresh air in the TOS forum and random other forums. He was 'out there' to say the least. I remember his posts and caption contests became far apart gradually and then just didnt come back from wherever he went.

So from Cooleddie74 and Classic Fan we need to start a search for Shatmandu

If you're out there, we miss you and want you back.

My husband is a nuclear engineer, and he is absolutely in love with the new design. He wants a model of it as a present.

I wonder how NIF was affected by the shoot.

Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

Personally, I like this "design". I like the realism and "raw" feel of it. That said, I like all of the other engine rooms on any Enterprise, except the core itself on 1701-E (the lights on it just look silly).

My understanding from the press releases was that it occurred during planned downtime anyways, and that if they had to do any cleanup/repairs, the production paid for them.

Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)

Rewatched the film earlier today and while I still think main engineering is way too big and looks too much like a 20th century chemical plant or beer brewery I'm liking the redesigned, alternate timeline warp core more and more. It has a more realistic, practical feel to it than the glossier, sleeker and more sterile warp cores of the Prime Starfleet we've seen over the decades. This is a warp core that shouts "raw power" and you can believe that this thing can propel a starship much faster than the speed of light.

A zappy electric arc doesn't shout "raw power" to me, it shouts "wiring mistake".

I think they went too far in the "realistic" direction; this is a power source that's supposed to be driven by matter, antimatter, and dilithium. None of those were involved in what we saw. I think going with something more fantastic, something that doesn't look like something we can build, would've worked better.

You then have the question of "well, what can Kirk kick?". Maybe they could've had something that looks like the TMP warp core (inside that outer "realistic" NIF set - radiation shielding?), and he needed to reseat the dilithium before the reaction could restart.
