    The burn marks on the leading edge of the saucer look like they streak back, as if the ship was at high speed when the damage occured. Kinda wondering if the ship was maybe traveling at warp and then the deflector was destroyed. Would certainly explain such heavy damage. And it would be a huge move for Harrison to sabotage the ship at warp.

    I reckon the scorch/streak marks are from an earlier encounter with a volcano :)

    It looks moe like the phaser banks were targetted not the name of the ship.

    He's as much in the know as any of us but always plays the safe bet and will consistantly dismiss idle fan speculation like an online Buzz Killington as though it's important and matters in any way.

    Personally, I think the Enterprise will blow up, Spock will die, Kirk will be promoted to Admiral, there will be a young Picard cameo, Earth will be partially destroyed and then rebuilt to resemble the 2nd Death Star and Admiral Archer's dog will turn up.

    We'll see on May 18th.

    Perhaps McCoy will die in Spock's place, to subvert expectations?

    And I don't think Cumberbatch is an augment from the Botany Bay. He's a defector from the Federation.

    Maybe it's April's lost Enterprise crashing, not the identical-looking replacement built for Pike.

    Well, for what it's worth, here's what Abrams had to say about the ending

    Such bullshit. My favourite genre is horror, explain that one JJ.

    Whoever erased the name wasn't aiming for the phaser banks, for the banks on both the port and starboard sides were intact.

    I have a explanation for the 'bubbles' everyone is talking about that seems to be coming from the front part of the saucer. It's the Enterpise's Fire Suppression Systems at work trying to put out the fire with water caused by battle damage. The water is leaking through the hull breach as the ship heads towards the atmosphere.

    No, the coincidence was half the stadium going "into darkness".

    You don't feel strong/happy that you survived and the cast didn't?

    Or just the ship's water supply being breached. The old 1975(ish) Enterprise blueprints by Franz Joseph had the water supply stored in the saucer. It's something I liked in the first film - Robau walking through puddles, with leaking pipes overhead.

    I'm thinking it's air escaping from the ship, the ship looks like she lost power and has numerous hull breaches so there could be loss of air.

    Or it could be smoke from inside as well.

    Hopefully Scotty isn't trapped in the water pipes again!

    Doesn't the plot resolution of many horror films often include some sort of "triumph over a threat"?

    I would think that would give you a stronger feeling.

    What if it's CG work to disguise the ship's actual registry number and name for the trailers; the Connie crashing towards Earth isn't Enterprise at all, but another Constitution-class ship? :devil:

    M y biggest gripe with Enterprise taking so much damage and falling to the planet is that it really does little to help Kirk as a character. He gets to be captain at the end of the last movie, and the first adventure, he (nearly) loses his ship?

    Doesn't sit right with me. Makes him seem incompetent.
