    Yup. Looks like a lot of beer is going to be spilled in engineering. That's ok, though. Its only Bud. :p

    Yea. As I understand it they used the Budweiser facility in the San Fernando Valley, CA.

    *sigh* Oh well.... I was hoping for a 'new' interpretation of the engine room that would have been a walk back from the brewery & city-block-size-catwalks-and-tubs set (they are on the Enterprise, not inside the Death Star nor within the Great Machine of the Krell), but I guess I'll have to live with it.

    Not liking all the 'cracks' that keep cutting across floors & walls & ceilings of the Enterprise in these J.J. movies, though. Dramatic, but seems like this pervasive structural damage would make the NCC-1701 worthy of decommissioning, not a candidate for repair....

    Scotty: "There's red lines through her lateral structural members. She's broke her back. She'll never warp again."

    I wonder what type of weapon hit the Enterprise, it looks like it is caught in some sort of turbulence.

    Notice the poor crewmember that "falls" sideways into the wall. Yikes!

    Scotty needs to work on his upper body strength.

    Great clip, want more.

    Whats going on with the gravity there I wonder.

    Additionally, how does gravity plating work [isn't that how they create artfiical gravity in Trek] in such large open spaces?

    Wasn't gravity plating first mentioned in Enterprise? Even there you had a neutral spot on the ship, so it probably works in a way different from what you would imagine when you say "gravity plating". Besides, it could have been the artificial gravity of another ship that was pulling them down when theirs went off.

    Either way, I don't care how it works, it is amazingly cool and it makes sense for it to do that in space. It makes the whole concept of artificial gravity feel more real to me. Neat idea. Good job.

    There's probably some technobabble explanation that I hope they don't bother with.

    In any case, either the plates are screwed up and switching the gravity around the ship, or they're not functioning. If they're not working, the ship must be close enough to Earth to be affected by her gravity. To be most accurate (within the sci-fi tech bounds they've created), it would be nice (but was probably beyond the budget) to see brief moments of zero gravity, too, as the ship pitches and rolls down into the atmosphere.

    Well, in TOS we had magical 'lighting panels,' if you recall only to be retro converted back to light bulbs by TNG. ;)

    I gottcha. Don't ask too many questions how the magic works - enjoy the ride.

    405? It's nowhere near the 101.

    Gravitational fields are in flux. ;)
