Captain of the [Spoiler]

If Kirk and Harrison have to do the space jump over to the Dreadnaught , then who has been the captain during the apparent attack on the Enterprise?

This could be a major question that has been overlooked.

Or did I miss it somewhere?

Maybe his second in command was in charge, one of his supermen. Or Gatt2000.
Or Harrison attacks, then for some reason goes to the Enterprise and then has to go back with Kirk.

The Dreadnought Rendezvous with Enterprise. The whole fight-betweeen-two-starships thing was a ruse. They're fighting off a Klingon Fleet.

....or Harrison was betrayed by his 'guy'.

Re: Captian of the [Spoiler]

Be careful of using the word 'Dreadnaught' (Which if I'm really going to be picky should be spelt with an 'o' instead of an 'a' btw) in your thread title. I tried to use the same word and got told off by a big burly red-shirt moderator! (Think his name was cup-cake)

Re: Captian of the [Spoiler]

I think, again, the trailer is edited in such a way to present a different story than what really happens in the movie. I'm guessing it goes down as follows (this is only a guess,
but I'll wrap it in a spoiler tag anyway because it does contain a known fact):

I thought it was John Harrison that was in command of the Federation battleship? The last trailer shows him setting in a Captain chair.

Maybe the Dreadnaught has no crew. Maybe it's "crewed" by M5

I just went with standard spell-check.

BTW - Wasn't "cupcake" eventually put in his timeout corner.

Re: Captian of the [Spoiler]

At some point (I'll have to look it up), didn't Peter Weller say he was playing a CEO with his own ship? An Admiral would be considered a CEO in the Starfleet ranks, so I think it's pretty safe to say he commands the Dreadnaught. Maybe not in everyday duties, where Harrison could be the skipper, but on special occasions Marcus could take command, leaving room for Harrison's space jump with Kirk.

Edit: Found it

Could be Harrison was trying to stop it before it can be deployed for action with a crew. It's been said that for its size, the ship requires only a small crew to operate it, so maybe Harrison found out how to take over the ship and run it himself by hacking April's files (that would be the comic tie-in). An M5 type computer would make sense in this technologically accelerated timeline.

If Harrison has a crew on that ship, that means he has confederates, and what he's doing is more of an organized rebellion of sorts (dare I say, insurrection) for a greater cause, and not just a rogue person carrying out a personal agenda.

There is a crew on the ship. We've already seen them in a press photo (JJ standing in front of the bridge set). It appears that Joseph Gatt (bald) is one of the helmsmen.

For some reason that bald guy just doesn't look like Gatt to me. His head isn't as pointy and he appears to have more in the way of eyebrows. Of course, that could be added in. I think I'll stand by my assertion that Gatt is the burly guy in the pod room.
