Re: AFT NACELLE (Spoilers)

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it already.

Could the line have been "aft nacelles"? (Okay, I know there are no forward nacelles but it would make more sense if it was just a line goof.)

Also, is nacelles really plural of nacelle? (I know "nacelles" has been iused in Trek in the past, but nacelle as a plural seems like it could make gramatical sense.)

Just my thoughts.

No I'm pretty sure he says the aft nacelle, not nacelles. In Star Trek 2009 Pike says something about diverting power from port nacelles to forward shields. That one bugs me too, but not as bad as AFT NACELLE

I should have been clearer. I know cumberbatch says "nacelle", just speculated as to the original intention of the line.

I thought he was talking about realigning Shield power to strengthen the forward shields and take away power from the shields covering the port nacelle.

Re: AFT NACELLE (Spoilers)

I heard "aft nacelle," too, but didn't give it a lot of thought.

UNTIL NOW.

I suppose if it's a mistake it could make it to final cut.

Putting my nerd hat on for a second, left, right, or aft, who the hell locates life support for the entire ship near an engine nacelle, anyway? After all, engines are common targets. Someone may shoot at the engines simply to disable the ship, hit life support, and bingo, they've killed the crew.

I would also think life support is a redundant system with backups all over the ship in case parts become damaged or destroyed. We don't know if this Enterprise's saucer separates, either. But if it does, then the primary and secondary hulls would need completely independent life support systems, too, each with their own redundant systems.

It would also really suck if the Saucer used round air filters and the secondary hull used square ones..lol

Good Lord, people. I think it's pretty obvious what happened. The writers needed a technobabble word, so they plugged "nacelle" in there. If they'd used "deflector", "power coupling" or "plasma conduit" we probably wouldn't be having this discussion.

Oh, who am I kidding? Of course we would.
Bingo!

I just re-checked the scene. The first time the Enterprise see's Nero. Nero fires on the Enterprise, and Pike says "Divert auxiliary power from port nacelles to forward shields."

I didn't want to talk about this but...
Why does the nacelle have "auxiliary power that can be transferred to the shields? and more importantly:
PORT NACELLES?!?

Maybe they do just write this shit to piss us off?

If this pisses you off, then, yes, I hope they do this on purpose.

Yeah I noticed that too. I wouldn't worry about it.
