    Jimmy! You plebe!!!!

    This stuff looks better and better. The slow release of photos will allow us to ease into the new Trek aesthetic slowly. Genius.:techman:

    It's the cove and light band directly in front of the screen / window on the inside.

    Of the frame around the window/screen. It's right there.

    AAGGH! I'm talking about the starfield not the f***ing light strip.

    EDIT: Ok, the frame, I see. Damn thee, english.

    If that's a reflection, then there is no window. It's just a viewer.

    Yes, you are seeing the starfield through the reflected inside of the window-frame. It's not that difficult to see...

    Go look at the sides of the glass on a mirror. This will show the same effect. Even the frame will reflect onto the mirror. Hope this helps, my friend.
    The MTV site which first posted a pic of Pine without the gold shirt said "it is part of the plot". We don't know what that plot is yet, but I also think it makes Pine stand out as different from Kirk while being Kirk.
    A good example of Shat wearing the black, long-sleeve undershirt is on Arena. Evidently it was chilly where they filmed it in the desert.

    Yeah, you're right, It's a frame. Inner frame, not outer.

    The window is a lie! :lol:

    The fact that you can see the hull of the ship is what gives it a window effect. Without that, it would seem more like a typical viewer just with some additional images overlaid.

    Also, considering it is the only thing between them and space... maybe multiple layers is a good thing.

    Why is it a lie?
    The frame is angled upwards and to the sides on the inside of the hull, the same is probably true for the outside of the hull, and that is why we cant see the outside-frame...

    There seems to be no indication that the viewer is a window now, to me. It could be, but there doesn't seem to be anything implying such.

    You can see the hull. It is somewhat visible. The first sixth or eighth of the viewer window shows the hull. You can clearly see "NCC"

    I noticed what you did, too. Bothered the heck out of me.

    And, it's not the frame. Look at it again closely. It's the glass (or whatever) itself, but it's tinted. Notice the light blue line in particular. Follow it around the window (or whatever). The stars are not reflections, but are being seen through the tinted part of this window/view screen.

    I'll be honest...

    There really hasn't been an instance where I've read something that J.J. Abrams said and thought "Wow. That was really insightful."

    The guy may be one of the most creative, talented people in Hollywood, but he doesn't really strike me as being particularly well-spoken. Just an observation. Of course, this won't matter one lick if Trek turns out to be as good as it has looked so far.

    Truthfully, Abrams is probably more of a visual communicator than a verbal one. But, point is: Ron Moore, he's not.

    Isn't it possible in the Trek universe to manufacture a material that only allows visible light through in one direction? Sort of like a diode only lets current flow in one direction? From the outside, such a "window" would look solid, possibly like a solid black rectangle (as seen in "The Cage") or no different from the rest of the hull.
