Well the planet does seem to have some sort of big volcanic eruption issues.

Besides, I'd rather see some new cool ocean-Enterprise shots than see standard orbit or hide behind a moon shots.
But it does beg the question, "Why?" Especially when there are shuttles for traveling down to a planet. It just seems "awkward," too. Parking a starship in the ocean? The Federation obviously needs to invest more in developing a cloaking device.
Oh well. It is what it is. As long as we don't see Scotty looking out a window, seeing a fish swim by, and doing a double-take.

More importantly, every report I've read so far about the nine minutes is very positive. The footage is said to look fantastic in IMAX 3D. I'm hooked. Big E underwater or not.

Yeah, especially since it doesn't seem like these natives have any sort of telescopes or whatever that would allow them to see the ship in orbit.

Maybe the shuttle isn't good enough. Maybe they need the Enterprise & its instruments to be very close for whatever they are doing to that volcano to work.
We'll have to wait and see the movie to know if it's just for coolness, if it's for plot or a combination of both.

Coolness is just fine by me so long as it's not idiotic.

And the answer is: this is cinema and it's something we've never seen before.

Re: Details of 9 Minute Preview Revealed *SPOILERS*

I really like how this seems to link back to Pike's speech about starfleet being a "humanitarian armada" (or something to that affect), since they seem to be on a rescue mission on behalf of the natives.
I also like how this throws to the garbage bin TNG's approach of "we must stand by while the pre-warp aliens are horribly killed due to the prime directive".

Wouldn't stopping the volcano from erupting and saving the primative natives be a prime directive violation?

Not that that sort of thing has ever stopped Kirk before, of course

Kirk gets in some trouble with Pike for one thing that he does here.

A fish would be stupid and predictable. It has to be a whale.

It's interesting that on and off the "internets," there is so much controversy as to weather a star ship can go underwater. In the Voyager Episode Thirty Days, Paris takes the Delta Flyer underwater for a protracted period of time. So why couldn't another ship also go underwater?
