Iano, how about you? Us folks over at the RPF are drooling - can you tell us anything about the use, functionality of the hand props? What's with the trackball in the Communicator? How dumb is the flippy phaser nozzle> How does the Tricorder read out?

So, ENT will be the only show that is canon in this alternate reality.

No more Vulcan?

I hate this movie already *seethes with raw fury*
No more Vulcan in the nu-Universe. It's still there in the Original one.
But apparently no more Romulus in the old-Universe.

"The flick starts out with a bang as the USS Kelvin is attacked by a giant Romulan ship that appears out of a black hole. The ship is almost instantly crippled, the Captain summoned by Nero, the movie’s villain who is searching for Spock. When the Captain leaves, he promotes a young man named George Kirk to captain the ship."

"Young Kirk honorably runs the ship, successfully evacuating everybody before it is destroyed, including his wife, in the middle of giving birth. It’s actually a very touching scene, about as perfectly effecting and emotional as I could have hoped for."

"It also kicks off the real split between this universe and the Trek universe we all know. Without any cop-outs, Abrams and his team establish that with this single event everything has changed. In short, it’s the perfect set up for a reboot. It can (and does, with Nimoy’s appearance as Spock Prime, as he’s listed in the credits) respect the originals while being free to do its own thing."

"Everything we have seen still exists, just not in this reality. I think it’s pretty genius, actually, but only if they stick to this universe now. I’d hate to see them go back and forth with the existing Trek reality and this one in further sequels. I like the world (or maybe universe is a better term considering the material) that Abrams and his team has created here. I like the cast he assembled, I like the way this new universe turns some old Trek landmarks on their heads, while keeping true to what’s really important to each character."

Some of it goes so fast, I don't remember most of the gadgets to be honest. I remember when Chekov was using the transporter, it had a joystick-type control to lock in on the target.

Yes. Several. No Daedalus though!
Do the other Federation ships look just like the Kelvin, or are there different designs? I don't want descriptions, just confirmation!

Re: World Premiere/Advance screening discussions [SPOILERS GUARANTEED]

So I take it there really is no discussion or reason for why the Enterprise looks the way it does, more advanced than TOS and all?

Does the Kelvin look less advanced than the Enterprise at least, maybe closer to TOS?

No Klingons? Then what about those photos we saw of Nero with two of them in masks?

several ships, all less advanced than Ent. different from Kelvin. I think they all had even numbered nacelles, though. I saw one with four nacelles and no secondary hull, like the Stargazer.

No... I think trying to shoehorn in an explanation would have seemed weird. I think the fact that this is a divergent reality is the most significant explanation for why things have changed.

Kelvin does have several aspects that are akin to original Ent although less advanced. There are touch screens on the Kelvin but lots of nobs too. I think it's a synthesis of 60s aesthetic, Enterprise TV show aesthetic, and what is common knowledge about modern technology.

Must be deleted scenes

Could you describe Spock (Nimoy's) scenes in the movie?

Also what happens to Nero after the Kelvin is destroyed? Thanks

I don't want to describe Spock's scenes except to say that of all the souls in the new movie, his was the most...human. Nimoy Spock is magnificent and integral to the film.

re Nero after Kelvin destruction, there is a satisfactory explanation for why he doesn't just go destroy Vulcan, Earth, Kling/Kronos/Klinzhai. he had an appointment with destiny.

I think that's when any Klingon stuff, deleted or otherwise, may have occured. I eagerly await the DVD!

What happens to Nero? Is he killed? Or have they set it up nicely that he can re-appear in the second film?

he meets up with Khan at the end, like I saw in that thread here earlier. j/k

Nero's fate is resolved at the end of the movie. He won't reappear, unless he got trapped in the Nexus or some nonsense.
