Vengeance concept art







Look, I'm no purist by any means, but those are just nonsensical in design and very ugly. The first one especially. It looks like some Halo-eqsue alien ship, not like it was built by humanity.
Yeah, I agree. If it was being built by orcs for the United Federation of Mordor, I could understand, but even as an EVIL!!! human ship, some of those spikey designs look ridiculous.

You should see Khans designs for new Uniforms

I like that with all the spikes and armor and crap he's got going on on his upper torso, he still just wants to be comfortable in a nice pair of slacks.

Damn, I love this one! This is the guy that should have "greeted" Uhura. The design is awesome, fresh, new, yet very reminiscent of TOS.

The ridges remind me of Col. Worf in TUC.

I can definitely see reboot Shinzon wearing that (when they get round to it. Eventually).

Plus that film (Man With Iron Fist) is a real guilty pleasure

There's a difference between it possibly having the same spirit/execution as Star Wars, and it actually LOOKING EXACTLY LIKE Star Wars. For the record, I don't subscribe to the former. But you'd be hard-pressed to ignore the latter if the above concept art had come to fruition.
The thing is, it didn't immediately remind me of Star Wars but of the place where Picard and company first meet Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis.
If you went back in time almost 11 years, you'd see that there were lots of folks pointing to that Shinzon reveal as being something straight out of STAR WARS in terms of production design.

In one sense, Zimmerman really did break with tradition on NEM. You had this SW-looking set, and then for what I guess was the Scimitar bridge, you had something that looked like it was shot in a warehouse, possibly where Corman made his 80s SF flicks, but without all the innovative inexpensive touches. That set was a SERIOUS mess.

I've just realized why I like this one - it's got the same "unfinished" skeletal greebly bits as the USS Star Empire from Dreadnought!

One of the writers is a Treklit fan, IIRC.

Re: concept art and set photos!

Some cool shots and info about Atomic Fiction's work on the CG version of engineering used during the roly poly sequence, the planet where Bones and Carol open the torpedo, the magic seatbelts and the awesome Google Earth-style sequence where Kirk explores the aftermath of the bombing in London: http://www.artofvfx.com/?p=4594

Planet Playa Vista, from this angle at least.

That's a pretty cool piece, though - lots of detail, and the guy seemed really enthusiastic about their involvement.

Re: concept art and set photos!

I am worried that with a majority of the behind the scenes staff probably going to Star Wars with JJ we will be left with the 'B-Team' and the quality will dip noticeably in future Trek movies as a result. It has been A++ so far! Would be a shame if that happens.

I'm not sure companies like ILM would jeopardize their good name by screwing up Star Trek which is now a pretty big deal as far as summer blockbusters go.

With a bit of Titan AE tossed into the mix.
