But what does that actually prove, though? If you're able to pick up on this meme, than so could anyone else.

I never said that it "proved" anything. I said that it was my rationale for thinking it was legit. Sure, any faker could superimpose a pic of a TOS Connie into that photo, but why label it with that specific number and name? Why not label it "U.S.S Constellation NCC-1017," or "U.S.S Constitution NCC-1700," or something similar? Why "U.S.S Biddeford NCC-0718?" It goes along with the 0718 meme of the movie, so I feel that someone involved with the film's production created it.

Re: Kirk Enterprise - the Enterprise(a)?

No one has said that the reason it looks so fake and slightly off, raising the suspicions of some posters, is the reason it was cut out of the film in the first place because they just couldn't make that shot look good and the scene that was chopped with it wasn't that important to the overall arc of the movie?

And THIS is the exact thing that happens when you spread all your deleted scenes out across multiple different platforms hoping people will buy the same film multiple times to see all of them.
Thanks a lot, moneymen

This has nothing to do with people buying multiple copies. Retailers pay for exclusives to get people in their doors. Paramount/Bad Robot would be stupid not to give the retailers what they want.

I'm sure it's been gone through ad infinitum and I don't want to derail this thread more than the current de-railing it's currently undergoing but retailers are stupid if they think DVD/Blu Ray extras are going to sway me from one store to another.

Personally, I LOVE a blooper reel and deleted scenes, they're my priority when it comes to extras.
But if they think I'm going to suddenly change my routine just to get them (either trek across town to a store that's one of the chain that has the DVD with those extras or change from physically purchasing to digitally purchasing, etc) then nope, like the majority of people I'm going to buy the main thing I intend to purchase (the film), see what extras I get then whine loudly about it on the internet until this B.S practice stops.

It's just the latest marketing gimmick from a dying industry trying to stave off death for yet another day.
Hopefully when a few more of these stores fall by the wayside there'll only be 1 main physical purchaser to go along with itunes and netflix and hopefully the extras roast won't have to be so thinly calved next time.

Then the prices of the physical items will go through the roof which will be good for everyone who likes physical media. Plus, a tom of jobs would be lost which would be great for the economy.

I think I can live with the inconvenience of a few split extras.

Re: Kirk Enterprise - the Enterprise(a)?

Back to the Kelvin-contemporary Enterprise, I don't think it's inconcievable to have had one, even a original-config Connie of that name, but I call BS on her being NCC-1701. Starfleet isn't above recycling names on ships with the same class (USS Saratoga NCC-1937, NCC-31911). Given the 0718 number of the Biddeford (which I suspect was reassigned to the other ship at space dock when this scene was cut), April's Enterprise being something like 0801, 0901, 1001, 1101, 1201, 1301, 1401, 1501, 1601 isn't out of the question, and that's assuming Starfleet demanded a xx01 registry. I'm thinking April's Enterprise just wasn't as noteworthy as the others.

...have there not been 718 episodes, all told, of the various incarnations of Star Trek?...

Re: Kirk Enterprise - the Enterprise(a)?

Well I'll be motherfucked up the goat ass, it is real after all. Still, it looks really crappy, and what the hell is keeping it in place anyway. Yeah, I know had the scene been in the movie it would have looked better and they likely would have included some sort apparatus showing how it hanging or something.

And while I now admit that I was wrong I do not apologize for my skepticism since my doubts were very legitimate based on the actual facts available to me at the time the picture was first posted. And I stand by those doubts on those grounds.

Meanwhile, in the scene itself, around the 30 second mark, is it me or does Noel Clark say he has a message from "John Ericson"? John Ericson of course was Khan's name in early drafts of Space Seed, but if that is indeed what is said here, it kind of shoots down what Orci has been saying about John Harrison being developed first and then turned into Khan. Or was he first written as Harrison, changed to Ericson when to was decided to go with Khan only to become Harrison again in the final film?

According to Memory Alpha, there are 728, but that's if you include all episodes from all series, including TAS and all 12 movies.

Re: Kirk Enterprise - the Enterprise(a)?

I think the model looks awesome! I love the idea that the old Constitution-class existed or exists in this timeline also.

"Ericson" was how the film was scripted and shot. They re-dubbed "Harrison" in post, believing it to be too obvious a giveaway.
(From either Orci's posts at Trekmovie or his Twitter, I don't remember exactly)

Just a shame they didn't have it marked "Enterprise", NCC-0701.
