    I went back and forth with a friend on this so many times. He's convinced it's the Enterprise crashing, but ANY fan can clearly see it's not. The nacelles on this ship (which I think is the Vengeance) are so much farther apart than the Enterprise's and plus they look totally different; they almost look like the nacelles from the Enterprise-E.

    The trailer is meant to throw us by showing the Enterprise going down and then cutting to this ship crashing. They underestimate us! :bolian:

    Not entirely sure it's a Fed ship. Some have speculated that it's a hybrid of Starfleet and Klingon tech (explaining the angular hulls and pylons), hence the prominent presence of Klingons in the movie.

    There's a new TV spot running. It's clearly the Vengeance crashing into San Fran.

    It is the U.S.S. Vengeance. There's a trailing that had been showing on TV, that shows her aft section.

    I don't know why some people think she is a ugly ship? To me, she is a beautiful ship.

    They've got to be large windows or some kind of shuttlebay door?

    I am not digging this design.

    Quick, without resorting to the Haynes BOP Guide, how does a Klingon Bird of Prey accomplish warp speeds?!

    i've seen the film:

    seen the film and think its ugly angularness works as a top secret, section 31 dreadnought class warship

    Logically, mass reduction. Given the thing's huge size, it's possible that they simply didn't have anythign worthwhile to put there and so left the space empty because filling it would have just added dead weight.

    I'll be honest, I think the garishness/ugliness is 'intentional', by which I mean the guys designing it for the movie wanted it to look like a technological beast, rather that something more elegant like what we're used to (YMMV as to how the rest of Abramsverse ships look). In universe, I think it's a case that it's more the designers for the ship were wanting to fit all the systems in and leave it at that.

    Edit: I agree with how it's a tad reminiscent of the Sovereign class.
