I don't think so, I thought Praxis was a bit further out than that. Though its possible that is what Praxis looked like because of the excessive mining anyway?

Re: References to other Trek MASSIVE SPOILERS!!

Yeah the NX-01 was a neat little thing thrown in. I got all the other model references,but NX-01 is confusing as in in 'A mirror, darkly' it shows a future ship, the defiant, as a prime connie. However, ST:FC - Kelvin incident being the post 'First Contact' timeline fuckaroo, makes sense to have it there.

Other references aside such as beeps and whirs from controls etc, I got the Daystrom line, nurse Chappel, however it's pretty much assumed Kirk had no idea who nurse Chappel was and he was flirting and making it up as if he knew what she was on about.

Not directly a reference but the kelvin memorial hospital in London, the uss Bradbury, probably JJ naming it after the late Ray Bradbury who was a big influence to gene and probably JJ himself.

And obviously the biggest reference is the film itself, a kind of kind of hybrid of Space Seed and TWOK.

More escapes me until a second viewing.

When Spock pulled off that bit off the flyer and started hitting Khan in the head with it, it reminded me of how Kirk beat Khan in 'Space Seed'

Makes you wonder: When Spock contacts Prime-Spock on New Vulcan and asks him about Khan, the conversation ends in mid conversation with nu-Spock asking "How did you manage to defeat him?"-or something like that. Did Prime-Spock tell him "You take some piece of equipment and beat him repeatedly with it" after the cut? ;-)

I love the K'normian reference and all those models ships. We'll have fun at Memory Alpha and EAS writing and updating all the articles for those ships! :-)

Do bat'leths count? awesome to see them again! i also liked what appeared to be mini-BoPs
I hated those ships. They were nothing like a Klingon design should have been, and sure they were no D4 class! And the braking sound during the "won't fit" scene was just too cartoonish!
The Bird of Prey in Generations was a D-12. IIRC, D-4 was going to be used for a retro-style Battlecruiser in Enterprise's "Unexpected" but due to a dispute with the VFX artist, they went with a K'tinga/D-7 instead. So the designation D-4 was unused.... until now.

And I loved the breaking noise! Made me smile.

There were the great musical cues.
Captain Sulu has a nice ring to it
I'm a doctor not a Torpedo Technician.
Section 31
Khaaaaaan
Radiation Death Scene.

Then as already mentioned:
Nurse Chapel
Dr. Carol Marcus
Kethel Province
Khan

I really did love the references to past series and past movies. Nice the see the skirts are back above the knees.

Chekov's face and the music cue when Kirk tells him to "go put on a red shirt" has to count as a reference.

Re: References to other Trek MASSIVE SPOILERS!!

The Federation obviously aren't the only ones stepping up weapons production. Praxis was overmined for something extremely volatile or used for subspace weapon testing in the Prime Universe, they've done the same here, only earlier.

Don't forget, the Klingons held Nero and the Narada for 25 years, they were likely as eager to have new weapons to combat it as Starfleet, and could explain a lot of Marcus' paranoia at the situation.

When Kirk formed the landing party ("Myself, Mr Spock, Dr Mccoy and Ensign Ricky"), he told the two security guards to take their red shirts off...

They survived
