Blue Warp Nacelles?

Could anyone tell from the recently released trailer if the "re-imagined" NCC-1701 have blue warp nacells as the Enterprise NX-01 and C through E have? I'd personally like to see it.

Seriously, this is important.

My enjoyment / hatred of the film hangs in the balance.

Well, they're blue at the front these days aren't they? So maybe they light up red at the sides instead?

It denotes how you're in a parallel universe... like noticing all those guys who go around with beards.

The question isn't if they're blue. The question is, why do they want revenge???

They turn blue when underwater. When underwater, the crew attach the special breathing apparatus to their sombreros.

I refuse to watch it if the nacelles are blue. I won't let my childhood be rewritten by some kid who hasn't ever experienced red nacelles in their true glory.

Heresy. The original nacelles were clearly blue and pink.

Spock's nacelles are, in fact, green.

If the color turns blue, it means the nacelle is pregnant.....

I want to see some deflector dish action in this movie. You know it's time to get down to business when you modify the main deflector.

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

I thought "modifying the deflector" was code around here for, uh, "polishing the nacelles."

Or is that "deflecting the moderator?" it's been a while...

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

Rumor has it the Enterprise nacelles in the new film each have a Mr. Fusion attached to them. It was for a deleted scene where the crew has to go back in time 30 years and prevent the Klingons from getting their hand on some dumbass sports almanac.
