Let's get back to critiquing this travesty, and save the bashing of the abominible movie itself for more appropriate venues, 'kay?
that image is, indeed, a bit of a travesty. but i don't see that it bears any detail relationship to the ship from the teaser.

(i mean, where's all the welder dudes?)

Being generous, let's assume that the primary hull on the new version is the same thickness as the original ship...

...and if what I suspect is the case and that sucker is four decks thick at the rim...
I think people are exaggerating the size of the Enterprise in the teaser by quite a bit. If we look at Jefferies Phase II drawings... which has figures of people for reference, it doesn't seem all that different to me.



What I see, from a quick study, is that the edge is maybe 30% thicker than the Phase II plans. And for stuff that most likely won't even end up in the film, that isn't all that far off.

I mean, come on, they don't even need to finalize the design of the Enterprise itself until summer if they don't want too. They just threw together stuff to make a short teaser.

They should've thought this one through a bit more, then.

Anyone with half a brain could've told them that if the ship didn't look right, they were gonna catch hell for it.

Yeah, JJ is losing sleep over what a few people on a messageboard think about an incomplete design seen half in shadow a year before it's complete.

This coming from the guy who wouldn't even put main engineering in the right location in his plans.

Perhaps their mistake then is employing people with whole brains.

They're not catching hell for anything. Some people on the Internet are complaining, and there's nothing unusual about that.

That's always how people get into trouble here on the internets.

Yeah, the more brain you have the more likely you are to get stuck in one of those tubes.

That's the Gabe Enterprise, which is not the ST'08 ship. You can see that the top of the saucer & bridge are different than the ones in the trailer ship. Gabe's ship has been around awhile now.

No, it's just Gabe Koerner's Koernerprise.

Calm down, it was a joke poking fun at CRA. He was hit by the "purists" for "changing the Enterprise" on his deckplans.


You know what, I just don't see what people are going off about about the look of the trailer. I mean, the teaser for TUC showed clips of TOS being projected on the hull of the enterprise's hull... I never say that in the actual movie.


And even if what we saw in the trailer is in the film, so what? I don't care if they changed the size or fine details of the shape to make the exterior fit the interiors. Something trek's always had a problem with.

I'm just happy we are getting another trek film, and I will wait to attack it or not till after I see it.

I just am sick of the people are hating it because JJ didn't break into the Smithsonian to get the original model out and photo scan it to make the new ship Identical to the one shown on the show...


I mean, even then which look did you want, there were three different versions of the model shot and they were used intermixed without what seemed much thought.

Wait, before you hate. :thumbsup:
