As long as its entertaining, does it matter?
For a Star Trek fan who wants to see more Star Trek, yes. It does matter. If I was just in it for entertainment, I would go for something else.
This is NOT grandpa's Star Trek, but it IS Star Trek. Fortunately, you still have TOS on VHS. The rest of us like that Star Trek is alive and evolving.
=========================================
If Earth does "fall", it would open up a chance to genuinely rebuild the world of Trek... and many new adventures for our favorite crew.

No.
Maybe we won't have an Enterprise at all in the next film.

But this one looks in pretty rough shape to me to think it was salvaged, especially if it crash-landed on Earth. The way the smoke is billowing from it leads me to believe it's already in the atmosphere. (Link to two pictures of damaged E, below.)

Anybody else notice that the damage to the Enterprise saucer seems as if someone purposely tried to blow the ship’s name off the hull?
I was thinking the same thing, it's a long shot, but could it be another ship? 1707?

My bet is that the ship falls into the atmosphere but regains control before she crashes.

Kirk asks "Who are you?" which means it's not Gary, nor April and not any former crew member.

Nah, it's definitely the Enterprise. After watching and reviewing the full HD version, it is indeed the E.



Here you can see what I mean though...it's like the name itself was targeted specifically. Whether it was by the attacker or just the SFX guys thinking it'd be cool is of course yet to be seen. Makes me wonder though if Harrison is indeed April, and April is indeed a former Enterprise captain...maybe he'd have reason to want the name scratched off the hull?

I also find it odd how the hull plates around the registry are so misaligned. I know they were going for the look of the ship really being made of different pieces but that's pretty drastic.

Could still be April, but not in a form by which Kirk recognizes him (i.e. much younger)

Re: Expecting Trailer?/Super Bowl Trailer is Live Now [SPOILERS]

The burn marks on the leading edge of the saucer look like they streak back, as if the ship was at high speed when the damage occured. Kinda wondering if the ship was maybe traveling at warp and then the deflector was destroyed. Would certainly explain such heavy damage. And it would be a huge move for Harrison to sabotage the ship at warp.

I reckon the scorch/streak marks are from an earlier encounter with a volcano

It looks moe like the phaser banks were targetted not the name of the ship.

You say that as though you are in the know.
He's as much in the know as any of us but always plays the safe bet and will consistantly dismiss idle fan speculation like an online Buzz Killington as though it's important and matters in any way.

Personally, I think the Enterprise will blow up, Spock will die, Kirk will be promoted to Admiral, there will be a young Picard cameo, Earth will be partially destroyed and then rebuilt to resemble the 2nd Death Star and Admiral Archer's dog will turn up.

We'll see on May 18th.

Perhaps McCoy will die in Spock's place, to subvert expectations?

And I don't think Cumberbatch is an augment from the Botany Bay. He's a defector from the Federation.

Maybe it's April's lost Enterprise crashing, not the identical-looking replacement built for Pike.

Eh. As you get older, you get used to that.

The more I see, the more I'm certain this movie doesn't end well. Or even if if does, at least thematically, Cumberbatch leaves behind a mess that will take decades to clean up.
Again, agreed. It may not officially 'cliff-hang', (can you imaging the butthurt of that happening!) but repercussions will endure.

Well, for what it's worth, here's what Abrams had to say about the ending

Despite how stressful and intense the movie will be for our characters, Abrams indicated that Star Trek Into Darkness will have a “happy” ending:
“I don’t like going to the movies to feel bad. I don’t like going to the movies to feel depressed and feel diminished. The reason you go to the movies is to feel bigger and stronger and happier. So this is a movie that they certainly go Into Darkness, but I would be the wrong director if it was about characters staying there. This is very much a movie about hope, about love, about romance, and about facing something that is truly terrifying and finding a way through the connection of your family and surviving and being stronger afterwards.”

Whoever erased the name wasn't aiming for the phaser banks, for the banks on both the port and starboard sides were intact.

Re: Expecting Trailer?/Super Bowl Trailer is Live Now [SPOILERS]

I have a explanation for the 'bubbles' everyone is talking about that seems to be coming from the front part of the saucer. It's the Enterpise's Fire Suppression Systems at work trying to put out the fire with water caused by battle damage. The water is leaking through the hull breach as the ship heads towards the atmosphere.
