Okay, HERE is my annotated, perspective-corrected composite of the "powerwall". It's huge.

HERE is the plain version. Also huge.

HERE is the early prototype version, with annotations.
Very nice.

^^^ @ Praetor - Yep, that thought occured to me a few posts back as well...

'great minds' and all that...
That sounds like a good bet. (Besides, if it had been a James Bond reference, you'd have people grousing that the movie used a DB5 to show off Aston-Martin's newest model, while in the novel the chapter title was "Thoughts in a DB III".)


Interestingly, the designation next to the USS Enterprise appears to be VH-5 / VB-5 - so I'm not quite sure (if DB means Docking Bay) what this designation could mean...

(Vehicle Bay 5, Vehicle Hanger 5???)

The smaller constitutition class starship (the mini-connie) has what appears to be the designation: AF / AP, while the even smaller Excelsior starship has VB (?)

The plot thickens...
Hm. So maybe the second letter refers to type and the first letter refers to general class. Vehicle, Heavy (Cruiser) 5?

Meh. Now I'm just reaching.

My guess is that it's the frequency designation of the channel.

I think you may be onto something! Rather than being obvious abrieviations, the letters may indeed stand for individual designations (as you've suggested), not unlike a vehicle registration.

With the powers of our communal Trek BBS intellects, this code will be cracked!

New set. Its very very different from the ENT bridge. (a lot smaller actually)

It's actually the same set and stage. Once filming was done on Enterprise - they redressed the entire set for Vengeance. it's on the DVD extras.

That post is from May, though - made on the day after the movie opened in the US. That the set was a redress was guessed, but at that time not known for certain.

Fantastic thank you! I've been wanting a good look at that shuttlebay for months. And future-San Francisco is gorgeous.

Re: concept art and set photos!

Here goes...

First, for those who still think the new Enterprise is the same size as the old one:

(and that 26ft for the TOS shuttle is based on the interior, not the undersized exterior prop)

Now, some bad news for those who, like me, want the new Enterprise to be consistently scaled at 725m...

It seems I was right when I originally guessed that they built the shuttlebay model using the early 1200m scale. Therefore the shuttlebay and primary hull details (bridge window, exposed decks after the Vengeance attack etc) are inconsistent.

And here's a wireframe of the shuttlebay. It may be too big, but it's still gorgeous.

I'd say that's about right.

Re: concept art and set photos!

And that looks to be for just the "shuttle racks" from the floor of the bay to the apex of the racks. One more deck on top of that at the aft end of the bay?
