You know, even though I KNEW Kim from "Home and Away" was playing George Kirk, it STILL made me angry when I saw his picture.

For Americans, this would be like Susan Lucci being cast as Betsy Ross or one of your other highly vaunted female historical figures.


It is just REALLY odd.
Just as odd as Mel Gibson playing American characters
Not odd at all, really, since Mel *is* American (as is Susan Lucci).

(seriously. Mel was born and raised in Peekskill, New York. You can look it up.)
Yeah, check above - I already stated Gibson was American. My point about Lucci was that it's a low grade soap actor playing apart that for some people is an important historical figure.

Am I the only one that gets more of a Jim Kirk vibe from Chris Hemsworth than Chris Pine?

In my eyes he would be almost dead on!

Very close.
He is way too tall. He is over six feet tall. Also he has quite a deep bass voice. Actually, he'd make a pretty convincing Klingon or Nausican.

Re: Tons of New Kelvin Info! (Including crew pics)

JoeZhang, I thought the images you posted looked a little short ... circles were about 90% high as they were wide on my screen. So I roughly scaled them and came up with this. I don't know if this helps folks feel the ship looks better, but I'm rather fond of it.

No way ... I'm not having anything to do with this "Away Team" revisionism. I'm a TOS man, through and through! I'm going on a "Landing Party" or I'm. Not. Going.


Yeah... I prefer 'LANDING PARTY' to 'AWAY TEAM' also...

I'd rather be cummin' in for a Landing than Goin' Away from the goal!

The former is so much more sexually suggestive then the latter.
I think you may be putting too much into this whole "fangasm" thing.

The best place to have a 'Trek-Fan-gasam' in public, is in front of the Monteray Bay Aqurium.
Indeed. I visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium when I was in high school with the then-girlfriend's family. When we walked up to the building I said "This place looks very familiar. When we went outside to the reef pool that stood-in for George and Gracie's tank it clicked. I was suddenly much more excited to be there. (And I enjoy aquariums anyway) Everywhere we went I ran around looking at displays, hand-rails, tanks, etc from different angles trying to remember specific shots.

At one point I think I told the then-girlfriend. "OMG... Kirk and Spock stood right here."

She wasn't as impressed as I was.

Re: Tons of New Kelvin Info! (Including crew pics)

Late to the thread, out of town and all that rot. I've mentioned my appreciation for the Kelvin design previously, so it was no surprise when my jaw hit the desk upon viewing these new pics. Just an absolutely gorgeous design.


And while I hate to bring the thread down, I have to agree with whoever made the point about "if the design aesthetic is good enough for the Kelvin, then it would have been good enough for the Enterprise" .

I had the pleasure of visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium when they had props for TVH on display.

Re: Tons of New Kelvin Info! (Including crew pics)

Has anyone noticed that the Kelvin (Enterprise, and even the shuttles) has no apparent markings or reference to the "United Federation of Planets"? The ships look kind of barren with out it.

*Even though the UPF logo is seen in the construction shipyard

Could this be a subtle result of an altered time line?

Well the ships belong to Star Fleet not the UFP.

And I don't recall any ship having the UFP or the Star Fleet logo on it, just the red striping.

Where on the other ships from the TOS-, TNG-, and the movie era is a UFP-logo visible?

On the secodary hull, there is the lettering for "United Federation of Planets" on the TOS Enterprise, all the way thru the -E
Such as this example: http://www.culttvman.com/assets/imag...aynebeli04.JPG
Along with the striping.

Damn, I completely forgot about that. Oy!

But in the TOS-era there never were such markings...

It didn't have the wording, but it did have a stylized "retro" variation of the striping.

So where is this sort of detailing/marking on the new ships?!
