The graphic designers, apparently, not so much into the hatred.

The sight of a weatherman in a Starfleet uniform amuses me no end.

Also, the "tightbeam transmission" graphic got Qo'noS' transliterated name right. Even though everyone in Starfleet mispronounced it. Intentional mispronunciation, maybe?
Just like people in TOS used to call em "Kling-uns."

Oh Orci, you devil!
That, the Risa label and one of the Organia references were on the San Francisco map graphic, I believe...?
The Risa one is marking a flight from San Francisco to "Risa Hedony", I assume the Organia one is too, but it's "line" either hasn't appeared yet or just vanished.

The level of detail is immense. All for something seen only in the blurry distance when Pike chews out Kirk!

Yup. Likely still dying an agonizing death thanks to Archer and Phlox.

The Menk were the "underdeveloped" race, so it seems the Valakians have died out, and the Menk have risen to dominance on the planet.

Right you are. Got my races confused there.

Still, Archer and Phlox are morons.

I wonder if the Menk are warp capable now, it's been about 107 years.

How could they be? Archer said it would be a thousand years, if at all, before they became fully sentient.

God, I hate that episode.

I haven't seen the episode in a while, I thought they were slightly further along than that.

Well then the Federation has been keeping tabs on them at least, hopefully trying to contain Archer's clusterfuck of the situation.

Re: concept art and set photos!

Holy crap, the Enterprise's shields are Diburnium-osmium, the stuff from "That Which Survives" which the Kalandians built their planetoid from. (yes, I got out my Star Trek Encyclopedia)


EDIT: Also just noticed that many of the damage callouts on the Vengeance damage assesment at the start read "OMG"

I saw Michael Giacchino in one of the videos on the display screen. Saw a mention of Andoria Prime...lots of goodies packed in there.

Re: concept art and set photos!

I pulled some screencaps and marked some of the points of interest.

- The Vulcan refugees have several colony worlds and go by the name "The Confederacy of Surak."
- The Organians seem to be visiting in either a ship or shuttle.
- The Menk appear to have an embassy, but the Valakians may have died out.
- The Risan colony/embassy on Earth in SF is known as the "Risa Hedony," which is pretty funny.
- There are three new ships in spacedock that we haven't seen before. A large single-hulled ship of the Voyager/Nova variety, a medium ship that looks like a smaller half-sized Enterprise (hey, there's one for the small Enterprise crowd), and a very small spherical or tiny saucered ship with two nacelles.
- Weather might be free forming instead of controlled.
- There appears to be a lot of social unrest and fights between cultures in this Federation, including in Andoria.
- There is a Federation "Trans Warp Network" with nodes that penetrate deep within the Klingon Empire. Is this a transwarp communication array, a transwarp beaming array, or does it indicate some kind of speed boosting network for the ships?
- There is wormhole research going on near the Federation/Klingon Neutral Zone. Is this where Nero and the Narada entered this timeframe? The Narada and its crew was captured by Klingons after being disabled by the Kelvin.
- Coridan, Galorndan Core, Sherman's Planet, the Organian Peace Treaty (disputed), and a newly discovered(?) Khitomer are mentioned.

Here are marked and unmarked versions of the screencaps (click to enlarge):

Re: concept art and set photos!

So apparently the events of Errand of Mercy have already happened in this timeline. Most likely with a different ship and crew?
