    Hence question C.

    If WarpFactorZ is calling the saucer in the picture "waaayyy oversized" because it's larger than the 417-foot/127-meter saucer on the TOS Enterprise, then we're looking at another "I won't accept that starships are that big" argument, and I'm just not very interested in flogging that one around the (oversized) block again. If he instead wishes to argue that the pictured saucer is too large when compared to a 300-meter saucer, then we might have a topic for discussion (but it would probably want a thread of its own, and might be better-suited to the Trek Tech forum.)

    The Newton Class ship docked behind the Enterprise has a registry NCC-07-0 (grabs Wormhole proof helmet and ducks for cover).

    I felt like checking out the saucer/building size. Here's a comparison of some Trek ships and some large buidings. The scene from the trailers of the saucer slicing through the building looks fine to me:

    For whatever it's worth, the plastic model of the Abramsprise coming out from Revell in May is stated at 1:500 scale (and they worked from the film CG model). At 588 mm long, that dials down the Abramsprise to roughly the same size as the TOS/TMP Enterprises. Still big enough to take a good bite out of some medium-size buildings, if that is the Abramsprise in that shot.

    Hmm, must be the resizing on my screen, the 1 isn't showing and the last digit looks like a zero, well that makes more sense, thanks.

    I watched it again and you're right. The 1 just about becomes visible for a few frames.

    It's a shame. I was looking forward to the walls of furious text ranting about it on www.ex-astris-scientia.org.

    Leaving aside my issues with such a ginormous ground built Abramsverse-prise - Grrrr!
    ...it doesn't really make any sense to me, the U.S.S. Kelvin being that large.

    There's the NX-01 through the Prime Universe NCC-1701, with that ship an unusual blip in constructions which by comparison, only got slightly larger inbetween.

    Oh don't worry, they'll always find something to bitch and gripe about, the more vocal anti-abrams ones around here are still throwing out idiotic rants about the last movie 4 years on.

    ^Very true!
    It could be that those Kelvin-derived Newton, Armstrong, Mayflower and whatever else classes of ships seen in the last movie were all in service in the Prime timeline, concurrent to the TOS Enterprise, yet simply went unseen until now. They did it with the Remans, why not ships too?

    The original series Enterprise could have been an equivalent ship to the 24th century's USS Voyager - a more advanced but smaller ship compared to the enourmous Enterprise-D's of the day.

    First you have to upload the pics to a picture hosting site, like www.photobucket.com or similar. Then you get the URL of the pic, and embed them here by using the [IMG*](url here)[/IMG*] code (just without the *'s)

    You can also just post the URL's, which automatically convert to links. They have to be clicked on to see. Unforuanately your Facebook link is just telling me I don't have permission to view the image.
