That is true. But Romulan ships from TNG/DS9/VOY era looked like birds, not squids.

We saw what... perhaps 4 (5?) types of Romulan ships during the TNG era?

And weren't they all pretty much official ships-of-the-line types from the Romulan Government?

Who's to say what the rest may have looked liked.... apparently now, we have Squid shapes to go along with the Bird shapes.

All of the Romulan ships we saw in those series (and TOS, for that matter) were warships, though. Narada is supposed to be a mining ship which, one might assume, has different functional requirements and, necessarily, different design/configuration requirements. I'm interested in seeing how the relatively clean shape seen in the comic becomes/transforms into the more grotesque Space Cephalopod seen here and in the trailer images.

These pics appear to be leaked. I went to Wizard Universe and the page was deleted.

Its not a warship. It is, presumably, a mining platform of some kind.

Edit - M'Sharak beat me to it.

Or something that washed up on the beach.

I wonder if it was built on the ground.

I wonder what the hell the thing mines for...

Oil?

Ores?

Gasses?

Just because You Can Change Everything, Doesn't Mean You Should.
It can't do "Star Trek" one iota of harm.

If this movie tanks, all the fans who are horrified by the changes will have exactly what they have now in terms of "Star Trek" and they can congratulate one another on being right.

What they can't have is what they want from the studio. Not now, not next year, not ever...because the only people to whom that makes sense are a few million trekkies and their numbers are dwindling rather than growing.
Pehaps... but driving away the (according to you) few of Us left, may not be such a great thing either.
It can't hurt anything, where Trek movie and television production is concerned...because there is none.

It's not all that likely to negatively impact the declining merchandising revenues of the Franchise either, since there's been no directive (that we're aware of) demanding that all the comics and novelists and so forth march in lockstep with the new movie from this day forward. They can have it both ways: if the movie's a huge success everyone who licenses Trek will want to use its designs and continuity, and if it isn't then the licensees can continue to provide an alternative "safe haven" for what's left of fandom.

The risk here in changing everything for the movie is minimal and the potential rewards considerable.

You people don't know what a squid looks like... cause that certainly looks nothing like a squid.

Stop calling the Space Octopus a "squid."

^^^ Ok or Octopus.

It really has no resemblence to either creature.

It does look like an octopus in the trailer, complete with tentacles. Playmates just fucked the toy up. And not for the first time, I might add.
