As to the comments about it looking like Gabe's model, I agree where the coloring is concerned, but that's about it. Otherwise, what I'm seeing here looks much closer to the original series model than Gabe's significant reimagined version.
And it looks just the opposite to me.

The front of the nacelles looks almost identical to Koerner's design, and the upper saucer is dramatically different from the TOS Enterprise.

---------------
I know the conversation has gone well beyone this by now, but after getting home from work and looking at the pic on my own monitor I felt I needed to note that, now, I too can see a definite Gabe influence.

You're all definitely right about the "bulginess" of the forward end of the nacelles, just behind the bussards. Just about identical. Likewise the general shape of the saucer, itself, down to what someone up-thread described as a "step" below the traditional B/C deck teardrop construct.

However, from this perspective anyway, from this "step" up, it seems much more reminiscent of the TMP refit to me.

Mea culpa.

The only other comment I have is ..., why exactly do people think this is being constructed on a planet's surface? Looks to me like this could just as easily be a shot from Earth orbit.

I just hope to God the con and viewscreen on this bridge face forward and aren't set on an angle.

Looks like the bridge may be more than one deck tall.

The synopsis of the teaser says that the ship is being constructed planetside.

I seriously think the bridge is now huge, look at the opening in the top - it looks like an enormous computer display on the back wall, im not sure what else it could be.
It could be anything really

Dare I say viewscreen?
It's not like they're actually building the insides to this thing, guys. This teaser trailer was conceived and work begun on it before sets were finalized or built. Whatever you can see "inside" on this image is whatever the CG artists and designers thought looked plausible for this shot.

Those CGI guys may still have been familiar with the (finalized?) design sketches for what was to become the bridge, though.

But even assuming that this render is accurate as far as interiors go, I don't think we can see anything interesting.

Re: Enterprise Pic

I have to say... I am really excited now. And this is coming from an original series fan who is very much willing to keep an open mind. Actually I have already turned the larger version into a wallpaper for my computer.

If anyone else wants it... help yourself. It’s widescreen though.

Re: Enterprise Pic

Beautiful. I'm hearing the ST theme in my head every time I see that pic. I think that may be the emotional high point for me when I go see "Cloverfield".

It's both retro yet evocative of the first movie Enterprise. Very interesting blend. -- RR

Re: Enterprise Pic

Thanks for posting the links to Gabe's pix, this is the first time I'm seeing them. And I must say, I like it. To me it looks like the perfect blend of old while still keeping it looking like the producers actually HAD a budget and are in the 21st century. Gabe's ship has got bulky older looking nacelles that look wicked, and keeps some of the old school with the deflector dish (which looks just as wicked). I'd love it if the ship in the movie looked just like Gabes.



Edit: clarified

He was talking about Gabe's ship. Confused me the first time I read it too.
