    Looks good. I really like the overhead "widescreen" displays.

    There is definitely a department insignia on Uhura's insignia.

    But I still can't see where her rank insignia is/are located.

    In looking at the Spock pic, it appears the viewscreen is actually in front of the window...like an overlay HUD as others have said. I think the window is just a window.

    Uhura looks like she wants to lay the smack down on SOMEbody. Looks like Kirk, Chekov and Spock in that picture with her? :techman:

    I vote for this. It makes sense as we've seen "aft view" before that also happens to get the nacelles in view.

    I don't see any window on the model in the trailer. I think they're just putting in the saucer edge to help the audience figure out where the bridge is, and make it seem more a part of a bigger whole.

    I'm loving how the pictures are being released - a few at a time, some of them showing parts of the bridge, tantalizing us with the tech equivalent of a bit of thigh or side-boob....

    And all in the full knowledge that the pics be analyzed to within an inch of their lives. Theories galore! positive and negative reaction! Let's face it, these guys know what they're doing, and all of us (and I mean ALL of us) are playing our part.

    BTW - I think it all looks GREAT, and I can't wait for the trailer.

    :D

    Maybe it's how the new badge insignia mounts to the uniform. It doesn't actually physically attach to the outer shirt but rather is held on by a magnet or whatever embedded in the undershirt.

    Ok, I see two frames, one in front of the other. If the thing in the back is supposed to be a window frame, why is the starfield extending all the way in front of the frame to the forward frame (look at the far right & along the top)? That doesn't make sense unless you believe they are showing a picture of a starfield imposed on top of another starfield.

    It just don't add up.

    Look closer.
    This is just the reflection of the set on the glass.

    But we can finally see Spock's in the picture of him in front of the window/view screen. Two evenly-sized bands, like commander's braids on the TOS uniforms. This is the third time we've seen a rank insignia reminiscent of TOS ranks. The first two were on McCoy and Sulu in the first wide-shot bridge picture. McCoy had a wide band and a narrow band. Sulu had one wide band.
    The uniforms are very close to TOS uniforms, right down to the department insignias being used again. Unless Abrams is really playing fast and loose with what the rank insignia mean this time, at least a part of this movie must be set in or very near TOS time. With Commander Spock, Lt. Cmdr. McCoy, and Lt. Sulu. Kirk, out of uniform, or at least without a rank showing, is obviously the wild card here.

    Kirk's insignia looks metallic-speckled to me... like the material of Finnegan's academy tunic seen here.
    Is it a re-imagined version of the academy tunic?

    Would it really have killed them to put Kirk in a gold uniform for the promotional pics?
    It's not like they're giving away some big "secret" that he eventually becomes the Captain, after all.

    Maybe I wasn't clear, this is what I mean:

    Why is there starfield on top of the 'window frame'?

    If you mean the streaks, I think that's a reflection. Glass can reflect stuff behind it if the light is real bright on the inside.
