    Exactly! [TM.]

    Or more to the point, this is a classic film scene that's been homaged by every great director of the last forty years:

    Fixed your quote attributions. The board's Quote and Multi-Quote functions will do it all for you at the click of a button; it's both much easier to read than the way you had it and links back to the post(s) being quoted.

    Cumberbatch lunges naturally past the cucumber patch. Say that 10 times fast.
    The 9 minutes before The Hobbit seems rife with spoilers for analysis. Is anyone on that?
    I'm not so sure they'll kill anyone off this time around... we are just getting used to the nuances of the characters (see: Tasha Yar) but if it is only to be 3 films and nothing else, why not kill the entire crew in the next one?

    For all we know, that scene isn't even in the movie. Baby Spock, anybody? We could be getting all worked up for nothing.

    The Enterprise was made far bigger in the last movie, in order to fit the dozens of large shuttles, enourmous engineering section and corridor network around and behind the bridge - up from the 289m of the original series to 725m (possibly as big as 1200m!) Although I don't think the ship skimming the water is the Enterprise, it's definitely in the same size range.

    Flux Capacitor is riight about trailers showing not-in-the-movie moments. I consider that fraud, and that problem's been happening in movie since at least 1988. For all we know Cumblebatch isn't even actually appearing in it. Stranger things have happened. Michael Biehn was in a TERMINATOR 2 trailer, yet not even the movie. I'm still miffed about that.

    I don't think so. While I am well aware that the JJprise is much bigger than any previous version of the ship, the ship in the bay appears, at least to my eye, and judging by the buildings in the foreground, to be vastly larger still.

    Granted, keeping things in properly scaled proportion is a special effects failing of many a film, so the seemingly massive size of the vessel may just be a mistake. Thus far, I;m assuming it's not a mistake, and that this ship actually is supposed to be significantly larger than Enterprise.

    TrekWeb: The last trailer scared the fans showing a half-destroyed Enterprise in orbit of Earth. Any comments ?

    Chambliss: Are you sure it was the Enterprise? This is a J.J. Abrams movie after all!

    Stop it at 15 seconds. You can make out "1701" and the ship isn't crashing on the planet. It is still in space, about to crash into the planet.

    Eh, I'm pretty sure the guy featured in every trailer, poster, set of images, etc. will be in the movie. And it's not fraud, it's called marketing and editing.

    I can exclusively reveal, they're upping the ante and destroying several Enterprises all at once for Into Darkness.

    The NX-01 will be stolen from the Fleet Museum and driven into the bay, crashing into the also perfectly preserved CVN-80 aircraft carrier exhibit... Meanwhile Robert April's recently comic-book depicted earlier Enterprise, will be used by John Harrison to write-off the movie hotrod NCC-1701 -- before itself exploding in front of a product placement for a well-known car rental place.

    JJ Abrams will then rip off his rubber mask, revealing himself to have been Michael Bay all along. :lol:

    That heavily damaged primary hull the Enterprise barely avoided in the first movie was substantially larger...

    Perhaps the ship in question is a member of that class??

    I still think it's the Enterprise.
