Re: concept art and set photos!

Just looking again at some of those USS Vengeance concepts: the first one, and several of the more fragmented / skeletal designs, with spiky protrusions coming off them - remind me a lot of the Narada - and I'm wondering if that was something of a basis for these concepts.

After all - the Vengeance looks like she was built in response to the Narada (overly aggressive, larger, and built for war).

Just my musings - nothing concrete, just what these more 'Orc-esque' designs evoke for me, in light of the 2009 movie.

I do like seeing these concepts images: they show an interesting evolution of the Vengeance, and even the more spiky concepts (although right outside the square, so to speak, as far as designs go) still have a place, and are interesting to view, IMO.

Vengeance concept art

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!

I like that too--nacelles trailing off into antenna farms

Re: concept art and set photos!

I'm glad the Vengeance ended up the way that it did. It's completely black and heartless. The antithesis of The Enterprise. As much as i'm not totally cozy with the JJ-E, it does have it's moments of beauty, and paired off against the absolutely brutal honest of the Vengeance, it's almost angelic.


And I love the Vengeance's weapons, too. PEW PEW.

Very PEW PEW. Lots of Star Wars sound effects in this.

Well, it's the same guy who did Episodes I, II, and III so I'm not at all surprised.

Found video of closeup footage of Adm. Marcus' datawall for demo reel purposes.

http://vimeo.com/72019454

References to Star Charts, Risa, Andoria Prime, Coridan, Sherman's Planet, Galorndon Core, Organia (and a "disputed" peace treaty named for it)...starting at the 27 second mark.

Re: concept art and set photos!

And there at the top of the screen, the words "trans-warp network."

Not that we should be surprised (they obviously got the technology from the Xindi a hundred years ago) but that means Starfleet in this timeline has transwarp drive at least 50 years earlier than they did in the primeline.

That's the stuff I've been most wanting to see close-up from the movie. Thank you!

Thanks for posting that!

Anyone notice the starship diagrams in the bottom right hand of the panel (in the Spacedock manifest)? There are x2 starships there that I've not seen onscreen before - not the best way for me to describe them but, one has a mushroom-shaped saucer, similar to a Nova-Class starship with a more rounded / flattened front, with the identifier of OB-5 next to it (with might be which docking arm it was linked to)

There's what looks like the Enterprise, with the code: VH-5 next to it.

A third ship looks like an elongated Excelsior-type starship design, with what looks like V-5/V-S next to it (quite hard to read).

If anyone's able to get a clearer view / screencap of these ship schematics - or if you have better eyes than me, and can provide greater illumination / detail on what starships these are - I would very much appreciate it!

Re: concept art and set photos!

At the 0:35 mark, look at Marcus's office; the lighting, the set up, how Marcus is sitting. That's right before where the alledged "deleted scene" comes from.

That, the Risa label and one of the Organia references were on the San Francisco map graphic, I believe...?

Re: concept art and set photos!

Also, the "tightbeam transmission" graphic got Qo'noS' transliterated name right. Even though everyone in Starfleet mispronounced it. Intentional mispronunciation, maybe?

All I've learned from this thread is that Abrams and Company really, really hate Star Trek and its fans.
