    Just finished watching it again and noticed a reference to the Enterprise-E...

    On Qo'noS, during the scene when Uhura is speaking with the Klingon, the big circular orange backdrop looks suspiciously like the main deflector dish of the Enterprise-E.

    As the shuttles are tumbling from their perches, I could see the number of one of the shuttles. It was 7, which was the number used for the Galileo in the original series and in the next generation.

    Among the models in the display, there was the Wright Flyer.

    It actually reminded me of the big reveal of Shinzon in Nemesis.

    Not so much. Similar though. But it was the deflector dish that caught my eye..haha.. Watch that scene closely and you can basically see the set which looks like the main deflector dish of the Ent-E. Its as though its the same set Paramount used for the deflector dish scene in First Contact...

    In the ship they took to Kronos, the yellowish circle on the consoles looked like the old astrogation disc on the center helm of the original enterprise.

    They did this in the last movie too, but the TOS computer sounds! I had a big grin on my face as the father sent his message to Admiral Marcus and the computer made all the 60's-style bleeps and bloops. All that was missing was the typewriter noise!

    They had tons of the classic sound effects... turbolift, the sickbay computer sounds, the brig ambient noise was from the series, computers, the communicator call sound and chirp, the tricorder. McCoy's medical equipment had some original sound effects with it. The Tribble :p,

    Speaking of the tricorder, it was a mini version of the original.


    I think I already mentioned Obsession and Kirk's reaction to Pike's death was similar to how Kirk felt about the death of Capt. Garrovick on the Farragut which led to his obsession to get the creature when the Enterprise encountered it.


    The warp effect was a combination of TMP / TNG. Also when the Enterprise dropped out of warp, and then later was taken out of warp when it was attacked reminded me a little of the wormhole from TMP.

    When you first see Scotty on the Vengeance, it was sort of like the scene when Scotty is on the Excelsior in Trek 3.

    I also like how in most of the fight scenes they are staged like the old fights on the show.

    Scotty calling Kirk "Jim" throughout the film was a nice call back to the Kirk/Scott relationship in the Prime Universe.

    The Ketha Province is where Martok is from in the Prime Universe. (The Ketha Lowlands). Presumably it is uninhabitable because of the premature Praxis explosion.

    Quite a bit of Ent, TOS and DS9 references. Anything overt from TNG or VOY outside of the Phoenix?

    San Francisco nightclub scene with Scotty and his sidekick. There was a woman who looked like Caithlin Dar from The Final Frontier. Her hairdo looked familiar.

    Fixed. ;)

    Now what about McCoy "operating" on those torpedoes? I thought that was an homage to The Undiscovered Country.

    Well, even in the Prime timeline Richard Daystrom had revolutionized 23rd century computer technology within the Federation by inventing duotronics, which he did at the young age of 24 in the year 2243.

    Even in the Prime timeline Daystrom was an established and known name by the time TOS rolls around given how quickly and easily Kirk and Spock rattle off information about him and know about his more recent computer developments. It's no stretch to think that Abramsverse Dr. Daystrom could have been famous enough by that particular 2259-60 timeframe to have a building complex named after him.

    A reference to the Enterprise-E main deflector dish on Qo'noS?

    No. it's just JJ Abrams' fondness of the Beastie Boys.

    I suspect the USS Vengeance crushing Alcatraz is a reference to Abrams' TV series of the same name being cancelled after it's first season.

    Khan crashing the Vengeance into San Francisco Bay is clearly a reference to the Bird of Prey crashing into it at the end of The Voyage Home. OBVIOUSLY.

    I am being sarcastic. A few of these are really a reach.

    Wow, really ? That's pretty cool. I have to look out for it the next time I see it.

    Me too. That was pretty sweet. The more I think about this movie, the more fondly I remember it.

    I mentioned in another thread that Carol Marcus explains the Vengeance will catch up to the Enterprise because it has transwarp drive. So, in a sense, the Vengeance is the nuExcelsior -- which is easily crippled by Scotty (the more they overthink the plumbing...).

    There's no mention of Transwarp drive anywhere in the movie. Khan states the Vengeance has "three times the speed" of the Enterprise in an earlier scene, that's all.

    The Vengeance has a top warp factor of 12.75 in that case, easily able to catch up on the Enterprise.
