Re: The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer is here!

Wouldn't shields protect a ship from water ?
I guess the pressure part is the question, could a shielded space craft withstand the pressure of let's say 2000 ft down into the ocean ?
Is that level of pressure ever expected in space, wouldn't the enginers have built that into a ship that could possibly face that level of atmospheric pressure on a strange planet?

Re: The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer is here!

Federation starships are made from immensely strong and durable substances like duranium and even neutronium so I'd say that yes, they could survive the pressures of being deep underwater.

If a bathysphere just large enough to hold two or three people can be engineered with what amounts to 20th century technology to survive for hours at the bottom of the ocean (12,000 - 36,000 feet at times) and modern military submarines constructed from steel and titanium can safely travel the world's seas at depths sometimes exceeding 2,000 feet then I don't know why a 23rd century starship with technology that borders on magic would be threatened with a few hundred or thousand feet of water on top of it.

And even if for some silly reason the hull were too fragile for simple water pressure the ship has energy shielding. So....it's a non-issue, really.

As was yours! I imagine that's how Khan trailer might look if they were doing it today. What I really like about the TOS one is the reaction shots. That cast always gave good face.

It's 'cool', but it is better suited for Starblazers.

That seems to be the general theme with nuTrek, which is to disregard any and all conventions of Trek and throw whatever they feel like into the mix in a really paint-by-numbers way. Along the way, Trek kind of is no longer Trek. It's just a bunch of guys with the Trek character names and uniforms frantically running from one cliffhanger to the next like they are the Avengers or something. Sells a lot of tickets but kind of destroys the original vision of Star Trek in the process.

^So you missed the underwater starship scene in Star Trek: Insurrection? You know, where they established the Trek convention that Into Darkness is using...

What was that vision, how was it destroyed and when was the last time we saw it?

You mean Hornblower in Space, like Gene pitched it? Or the "vision" of Trek that people came up with after it aired?

Neither Gene's initial vision nor the composite that Trek eventually became nor what it became in the TNG era is what nuTrek is. It's none of the above. For some people, that's a good thing, and for others, it's not.
