This all looks promising.

I believe this is also the first instance of a blue uniform connoting command status.

Sweeeet.

Loving the TOS inspired shuttle re-design.

Ooooh, possible vintage (from Kirks point of view) starfleet uniforms.



Oh, and from that pic, we can surely assume......

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

Seems that its just the one nacelle, then, but they're sticking to the rules and giving it dual coils. I'm glad to see they mentioned that (not because I particularly care, but at least it should put that matter to rest). On a couple of other notes, I'm struck by how flat the saucer section is. I don't mind it in the least, but its just an interesting point. That and the huge nacelle really help to reinforce the idea that this ship is an earlier design.

Did Tahir say so? I remember his comments to the effect that his character had a heroic part in an exciting sequence, but I don't remember any remarks about his nationality. I sometimes miss stuff, though.

Edit:

Here are the results of a quick search for "Faran Tahir" at TrekMovie.com:

http://trekmovie.com/?s=faran+tahir&searchbutton=go!

Edit again:

There is one quoted passage in one of the early articles (second-oldest in the link above) which could be read as talking about a captain who's of Middle-Eastern descent, but most of the rest of what I see is him talking about how ethnicity isn't a factor in the part.

Unless he is a Pakistani man who simply comes from Cuba, after all Faran Tahirso was born in Los Angeles so why couldnt it be the same for Robau except he was born in Cuba.

There we go problem solved

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

Watch the trailer again, the Phasers are in the correct locations.
They are of course in the correct locations in the screencaps, by definition. But the three hatches supposedly hiding the pop-uppers on each side seem oddly placed in the rotatable model itself - too far back, much as in the artwork where the ship flies nose up against a red nebula background, with a planet to the left. Or then I'm seeing things for squinting too hard, as the rotatable model is so damn dark and not zoomable.

And the "phasers" inset seems to identify both the six pop-ups and the two twin-ball banks as weapons of phaser type, but it sounds to me as if the writer is assuming a bit too much here...

Rather than Memory Alpha, this reminds me of the good old Fact Files, which had little in the way of actual facts to work with, but had to provide a certain amount of text nevertheless. Does the ship "really" have "four fusion reactors"?

ENT's jumpsuits were blue too, except for the division color stripes.

I guess he wasn't too sure of his part! Anyways, this won't affect my enjoyment of the movie, so who cares! Just as long as he's not wimp, I'm ok.

EDIT: Just read your edit. Yeah, I guess that was early in production. Like you said, the ethnicity isn't a factor, but the fact that people from all over the world can come together and work towards a common goal.

Yes, but the division stripes for command were yellow. In this case, Robau's and Kirk's entire uniforms are blue.

Oh noes!!!!11 The Kelvin crew isn't wearing Cage-era uniforms! Let teh Internets explode into flame now!!!!! Seriously, this looks great. Thanks for posting the pics. And if STXI succeeds, I'd love a series set on a ship in the Kelvin's timeframe. Looks like a beaut. -Dan

Wow! Thanks for the heads up, and the downloadable screen caps!



I really get a Arex the Triexian vibe from the Alien. Not exactly the same but close.

To be sure, these uniforms would be from the 2230s, while "The Cage" was from the 2250s. Since when has Starfleet managed to cling on to a uniform style for two decades straight?

I wonder... Is the shirt on Robau and Kirk dark blue, or perhaps some sort of green? And what (if anything) is Alnie here wearing?
