With that motion blur, I could almost convince myself that's the TMP Enterprise the Vengeance is chasing. All that's missing is the NCC-1701 on the underside of the saucer...
This. If only STO had some Giant Ship with a circular Saucer Section

I may be saying the ridiculous, but can't the Enterprise outmaneuver the Vengeance in Impulse speeds?

Re: New Poster (lol)

Dialogue in the film and what we've seen in the trailers says Vengeance is twice the size of the Enterprise, so there's a wee bit of creative license going on here.

But .. that's how big the Original Series/classic movie Enterprise would look next to it!

Nope. This is how big it is. And what you saw in the trailer? It's that big as well.

This ship is so bad ass that it can be as big as it pleases.

The Vengeance is so big that when it sits around the quadrant, it sits AROUND the quadrant!

As big and fearsome this ship is here, it's probably no match for a re-fit connie from the prime universe.

So, Vengeance sports 50m long windows, huh.

^Same size as those on the Enterprise saucer rim, which are the size of the one on the bridge - as I've already told you and even showed you.

Why do you have such a problem with 23rd century starships being big?

Explain!

Consensus around here seems to be that the Starfleet in this timeline is more advanced than the prime timeline because of its encounter with 24th century Romulan tech.

I have a problem with people who don't understand perspective, form versus function, and the size of a metre.

So how about everyone chill out about the sizes of stuff and go start a nice, calm, clinical thread about it (with lots of measurements, diagrams, tables, charts, and citations from the book of "Things Bernd Says") in the Tech Forum?

Or don't. Either way, the personal sniping in here stops now.

So the Enterprise's engineering sections is enormous; the Vengence must have an engineering section the size of the grand canyon.

Yeah, everyone knows size doesn't matter. It's all in how you use it...you meant starships...uh nevermind.
