A fish would be stupid and predictable. It has to be a whale.
Not just a whale, but a space whale.

For bonus points, it detonates once the Enterprise is above the ocean's surface to make things look even cooler.

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?
There might be a difference between a Delta Flyer and a big starship.


But this is "a starship built on the ground???" 2.0, and the suggested solution there has been "it's on screen, it's canon, shut the fuck up". So I know already how this debate will end.

Because it was Voyager.

I think the enterprise is on a starfleet sanctioned mission, otherwise it wouldn't be there.

I now suspect that if Cumberbatch does cause all the ships in orbit to fall down into the ocean, the enterprise will survive (or remain flight worthy) due to the modifications done for this mission.

Yes there is.
The starhip has more powerful shields & hull structure, so it's even easier to withstand the underwater pressure.

Actually, there have been plenty of solutions & explanations given over the years by people here, you just chose to conveniently ignore them. So we already know how this new debate will end too.

Cool story, bro.












Haha, always wanted to say that. Let's just agree to disagree here. Have fun with the film. I'll wait for the free TV or the youtube or something.

Re: Details of 9 Minute Preview Revealed *SPOILERS*

on issue of operability underwater, wouldn't it make sense that a spaceship impervious to vacuum and other extreme conditions could probably hack it underwater?

Re: Details of 9 Minute Preview Revealed *SPOILERS*

Can someone explain why the enterprise can't operate underwater?
I keep seeing reasons to why it can, but not to why it can't.

Great more forced humor. Hopefully Scotty still has his metal eyeball midget from the last movie. That made for some great scenes(groan). Perhaps we will get lucky and we get all the "humor" out in the first nine minuets.

In the ep where the enterprise flies into a giant space amoeba, surely whilst inside it is flying through plasma/fluid etc? The stuff that is inside a cell! So even TOS-Ent has been submerged before.
