    We know they're doing the Franklin and the Enterprise (-A?), I'd assume the third would be one of the Swarm ships.

    Strangely that would actually make sense. Much like the Captain's Yachts, I seem to recall that all of the TNG era and later hero ships in theory had that ability designed in, except Defiant. They just never made any use of it, and never created models and effects to support it. But the D, E and Voyager all had the ability on paper to jettison or swap around bridges ala Galaxy Quest. So who knows, maybe the nuTrek crew picked up the idea out of the old design notes and ran with it.

    Having seen the ship in action in the new trailer, it looks a LOT like the NX-01.

    Yep, the Frankin definitely looks like the NX-01....and the Loknar Class from FASA.

    Maybe that hideous bridge can double as the shuttlecraft.

    Some minor spoilers have been revealed for the backstory of the USS Franklin...

    According to Popular Mechanics, the USS Franklin is "an early prototype ship that was the first to reach warp 4" - so an immediate predecessor to the warp five Enterprise NX-01.

    I like the Franklin very much, I so hope it gets a model/toy release.

    Interesting cut-aways. Enterprise secondary hull nearly all Engineering and Shuttle Bay.

    I love the Franklin design and that it shares similarities to our good ol' NX-01. I'm looking forward to see her in action in Beyond. But at the same time I somehow would have preferred if they'd have made her a successor to Archer's ship instead of her predecessor. It somehow belittle's the NX-01's significance as the first of its kind. But I remain open-minded and will wait how this particular fact plays out in the actual movie.

    I have similar feelings for preferring it to have been an early Federation successor to the NX too. They've gotten the U.S.S. prefix wrong, given the ENT era ships don't have that. They could've gone for S.S. at a push. Precedent for that being the S.S. Valiant from "Where No Man..." But for a few years prior to 2151, it's really just the name and class.

    I struggle making it fit with Enterprise being deep space pioneers, after Vulcans held us back a century... when a Warp 4 ship like that could get to all the places Archer could have... just taking a fraction longer.

    What's onscreen is canon, so there's still hope I guess, that nobody pins a specific date on the crash. Just stated as a century ago should do it... leaving the field open for 2160s instead.

    Not that anyone actually watching the movie will care.
