If you take a look at the front of the nacelles, they look like Transwarp nacelles.
They look like Enterprise-E nacelles to me, not Excelsior's. Although most likely a fluke, it makes me wonder if Old Spock has been giving Starfleet some technology from 2387.

From a visual standpoint, 09 took most of its cues from TOS. A statement that will cause no amount of headspinning in some circles.
The Enterprise looks like the movie ship with the old nacelles to me.

Re: Into Darkness ties to Star Trek XIII?

Nah, it takes a lot of cues from the TV series ship, including the extended sensor dish with mechanical parts (as opposed to the hull-embedded "spotlight" versions) and the lit/transparent upper and lower sensor domes on the saucer. There's also little things like the "ENTERPRISE" registry on the upper hull being applied straight across rather than following the curve of the saucer as the NCC-1701 part does.

no reason in the world to think that the designers for Into Darkness would reference the Excelsior in that way.
Well, there's no reason they'd put NOMAD or ducks in a cut-away either, but they did.

After all, this new dreadnaught ship is supposed to be Enterprise's replacement/better right? It would only be natural if they caled it Excelsior as a joke, with the nacelle's as a give away to the fans.

I wasn't being 'treknical' but whimsical. A lot of in jokes, easter eggs, etc. Nacelle treatment might be an example of this. I guess if they called Cumberbatch Styles it would have been a bit much.

I'm trying to grok how JJ thinks.

In ST II TWOK, Kirk and Khan never came face to face. I'm thinking that even after the two ships ditch there is going to be some type of physical confrontation. We know that there is going to be more space-diving action for the adenaline junkies/wingsuit guys (got to get better on the sensors for that sort of thing

Unless this ends up as just the mid-part of a trilogy with a depressing ending (likely) I can just see Pike say "You threw not one but two ships into the water, Kirk?"

I'm beginning to think that, in today's even faster pace--JJ is thinking less Gene R but more Steve O.

"I'm Johnny Knoxville, and this is Star Trek: Into Darkness"

Let's shove two starships into water and get all hurt.
