    I'm not disputing there's an error but fwiw as a non graphics person I'm still not sure what bit of the images you're talking about: what with the debris the lens flares and the (intentionally introduced) imperfections it all looks like it was meant to me.

    Which I s'pose is why it was let slip through - invisible to the masses, even in still form.

    Are you kidding? You honestly think that's a mesh error?

    That broken line of light on either side?

    Ever think that it was meant to be that way... just like the light coming from underneath the nacelle caps was meant to be there?

    No, it isn't a mesh error. This is ILM we're talking about. They wouldn't let such a glaring mistake get past them. Of course it's meant to be like that!

    Of course that is not a mesh error!
    You must think I'm quite the moron...

    Well, I'm not (at least I'd like to think so ;) ) and that IS a mesh error (a small one, but there it is):

    I see what you're pointing out, both here and in the unmarked frames you linked above, but I think it'd take a pretty practiced eye even to spot it with the ship in motion. Granted, I only got to see the movie once on a big screen and probably missed quite a few of the finer details, but I'm not sure I would ever have noticed this if you hadn't brought it up. Guess I'll have to give it a try once my DVDs arrive.

    Don't let it ruin the film for you though ;)

    Wow, to think you spotted something that small, like the last post said don't let it ruin your movie experience because it really isn't that important.

    It isn't important.
    I just wanted to prove that I don't see ghosts :D

    There are also shots in the film where you can see the impulse engines through the underside of the Enterprise saucer. In the first trailer, for one frame you can see through to the other side of the Kelvin saucer. Not sure how these things happen, but they do.

    Either way it doesn't matter.

    ST-One, I am looking to model the JJprise, and was wondering if you could post orthos of the Enterprise from the Starship Simulator. In that Starship Simulator, can you get top, bottom, front, back, and side views?

    No, the views and moves are all pre-rendered (you can get some really good close-ups from certain parts of the ship though.)
    But I don't have a BluRay drive in my PC, I only have a PS3.
    Sorry, I'd love to provide screen-caps otherwise.

    Ok, well thank you for that information anyway. I wish the moves weren't pre-rendered. Or at least, I wish the moves would allow ortho views.

    Based on your observations, how accurate in shape would you say these are....

    It's so frustrating they haven't released official blueprints or schematics of the new ships.

    There will probably be good ones in that technical manual that is supposed to be release next year (if it is still being made).

    Those linked schematics look pretty close.
    Though I'm sure they are not really accurate... ;)

    One thing though... that segmented bussard-collector cap is something Tobias Richter came up with for his version of that ship.
    So far as I could see the cap is a smooth half globe (like on the TOS-version) with a metal structure underneath.
    You can glimpse it a little here:

    I'll try not to let that happen. :techman:

    Did you honestly expect people to see that dodgy dot with the initial description you gave? :confused:

    Yeah, I'm looking at this "error" and thinking... "really?"

    I'm sorry for having noticed and mentioned it here.

    It didn't and won't :D

    You don't and you have excellent eyesight: did you have to single frame the movie to see it?

    It was below my visual threshold certainly. :o

    Nope.
    It isn't called 'motion picture' for nothing. ;)
    When I watch a movie, I watch a movie and not a slide-show.
    Besides, the flickering nature of that particular little, tiny mesh-error is mostly only noticeable in motion.

    Just wondering, I did notice a print ad for the DVD at Wal*Mart. I wonder when a full campaign is coming.

    I'm panicking! This Enterprise doesn't even have a falange!
