Enterprise in both Star Trek universes

I still think it's bitchin' that Enterprise is the only series that is completely intact in both Star Trek universes.

Re: Enterprise in both Star Trek universes

It is amusing.

Although I dismiss all those "it looks too advanced" complaints that crop up as the rubbish they are, Enterprise certainly does look the part as a prequel to STXI. I loved how the Kelvin crew wore a stylized halfway between the ENT and TOS uniforms.

Even the Romulan stuff from season four looks vaguely similar to Narada, mostly black and with all the exposed pipes and cables.

Well, the NX-01 engine room is certainly more advanced than the NuCC-1701 brewery.

Not really - ENT had a big vat/warp core in the middle of the room with catwalks around. STXI had several, bigger vats in a much larger area and more catwalks. As we saw at the end, the vats contained the warp cores, just without the glowing "windows" the ENT one had.

Yep, that's still a great little STFU for the haters.

Eh, not really. We just shrug and say "Uh...okay." and keep watching the other shows (which I say as someone who doesn't hate ENT for canon violation or anything stupid like that, it's just...not my favorite).

Hating and not favoring are two very different things. Voyager is my least favorite Trek, and I still very much like it.

I have to side with you on this one. I think JJA was totally wrong to use a Budweiser Brewery Plant for the engine room of the NCC-1701 (just to save money). I thought it looked awful even before I found out it was a brewery. I also thought the old power plant for the Kelvin was "out there:" as well. I did think the bridge of the Kelvin was pretty awesome.

The Budweiser engine room looks like shit, and it looks even shittier compared to the original designs made by Ryan Church.

I wholeheartedly agree.

Re: Enterprise in both Star Trek universes

I think ENT is intact only up until the resolution of the Temporal Cold War; THAT'S where the divergence from the mainline Trek universe into JJTrek happens, not when Nero shows up.

Abrams didn't do it to save money. He did it because someone higher up wanted to render the engine room as all CGI, and JJ Abrams is a very tactile filmmaker. When the honcho wouldn't let him build a practical set, he hired out the brewery.

A smart executive would let Abrams build his practical engine room set for the next film.

I am afraid that the young people the Abrams Trek caters to do not give a darn about the engine room.....

It's about the only thing I like about the Abrams-verse.
