I don't recognize the validity of anything that starts with zero.

Pft! it's so Galaxy Quest! *snigger*

But seriously I like that the Ship is a mining ship and not some advanced Enemy Warship.
I can just imagine it in action with tentacles ripping starships apart.

Anyone here remember a few months back some newb poster telling us all how the ship looked like this and nobody believed him?
Oops.

It wasn't so much "we didn't believe him" as "he was a total dick and got banned."

That's what I like about. It's something we haven't seen.
BINGO! And yes I do like it cause its got that Anime look to it. Also doesn't look like a squid to me... maybe its tentacles aren't extended?

I looks more like a space sea cucumber. I like it. I get the sense that Nero is a radical, so his ship being so strange fits.

Oh by the way, Robotech rocks.

Stop calling the Space Octopus a "squid."

^^^ Ok or Octopus.
It really has no resemblence to either creature.
Since cephalopods in general are an extremely varied lot, (and becoming more so with each new species discovered) that sort of generalization doesn't mean a great deal. It also kind of looks like one of those fuzzy/feathery things you see stuck on a fly-fisherman's hat. Be that as it may, it was determined long ago that Space Octopus was the approved designation for Nero's ship, just as the apparatus it deploys is a Giant Space Drill (or GSD.) Adherence to nomenclatural convention, and all that, you know?

I like it and realize that it's just a computer generated image that has no bearing on how I feel about the franchise as a whole, one way or the other.

Fresh new take from a fresh new movie that's being reinvented from an old, stale franchise. What's not to like?

DITTO!

I think the 'tentacles', (seen in still pics and the trailer as that long spiky thing extending from space to the platform just above the planet surface) are here shown in the 'stowed' position.

Re: First Clear Picture of the Narada *Warning: Spoilers*

Meh. I don't have many problems with the design. I like it a lot more than the lame-o new Enterprise, that's for sure. I like it that not all ships of the 24th century Romulan Empire are emerald-green with predatory birds embossed, etched or painted onto their hulls. Or that have easily discernable warp nacelles and bridges. The old TOS Romulan ships didn't follow the same color and design schemes, either...and made the Empire look more complex in its tastes for spacecraft than the 24th century series made it appear.
