Quick one, I thought I'd use that photo as it is.

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

Not the Enterprise, I think, but maybe that ship that crashes into San Francisco Bay. Maybe Harrison tried to crash it into the city and Kirk managed to wrest control at the last minute and steer it into the bay instead. The vertical corridor scene could be aboard that ship as it's sinking and everyone is trying to get off.

In the trailers we see clips of people dangling from the corridors (no doubt including Kirk, him dangling from things is the new shirt-ripping), a woman falling, and one shot of Scotty holding on by one hand in engineering, as the Enterprise's gravity is tipped 90-degrees. It looks incredibly cool.

But what could do that? Artificial gravity failure close to a planet? Or while moving at sublight? Or some sabotage or malfunction of the ship's artificial gravity generator (if there is such a thing) cranking "down" 90-degrees from where it should be?

Speculation commence!
If you look hard enough you can see Gene Roddenberry's Vision™ falling down the hallways too. Yes, the new movie looks well made, spectacular, fun, thrilling, and like something people might actually want to see... but all of these things are clearly not Star Trek.
Clearly.

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

The ship that crashes into the bay comes to a stop after demolishing a building or two and in the trailer we see John Harrison (is it him?!) standing where his viewscreen used to be looking down upon the destruction.

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

That would make a lot of sense. I guess it'd be where they foil his first attempt to leave earth, and stick him in the brig.

Although if that were a ship's viewscreen/window and not a window of a building, what's with all the vertical cables through it?

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

So the argument is that the gravity of a planet makes people fall down hallways, but the gravity of a black hole that was almost impossible to escape at warp speed... uh, nevermind...

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

Wasn't there something about using the artificial gravity systems as a weapon in one of Diane Carey's novels? We know she's among Orci and Kurtzmann's favourite novelists...

Tipping gravity 90 degrees?

I thought 20% was customary...

Re: tipping the gravity 90-degrees

Here's hoping it's not just the ship tipping. I hated it in Revenge of the Sith and I doubt I'd care for it in Trek12...depending on the situation.

I don't know about novels, but Enterprise had this:

Yep. Someone's got to do the rescuing.
