    The ship that crashes into the bay comes to a stop after demolishing a building or two and in the trailer we see John Harrison (is it him?!) standing where his viewscreen used to be looking down upon the destruction.

    That would make a lot of sense. I guess it'd be where they foil his first attempt to leave earth, and stick him in the brig.

    Although if that were a ship's viewscreen/window and not a window of a building, what's with all the vertical cables through it?

    So the argument is that the gravity of a planet makes people fall down hallways, but the gravity of a black hole that was almost impossible to escape at warp speed... uh, nevermind...

    I take it the other ship is the Carpathia?

    Wasn't there something about using the artificial gravity systems as a weapon in one of Diane Carey's novels? We know she's among Orci and Kurtzmann's favourite novelists...

    Tipping gravity 90 degrees?

    I thought 20% was customary...

    Here's hoping it's not just the ship tipping. I hated it in Revenge of the Sith and I doubt I'd care for it in Trek12...depending on the situation. :)

    I don't know about novels, but Enterprise had this:

    Yep. Someone's got to do the rescuing.

    Inertial dampening and/or artificial gravity failure while the ship is under about one gee of acceleration would turn the back of the ship into "down" from the crews perspective. Hallways would become bottomless chasms.

    But since this is Abrams Trek, it's probably just the ship going into a dive or a climb.
