justabitdisturbed: it's Khan's hand you see in the foreground


Hard to say, but doesn't look like Cumberbatch's pornographic giant spider hands.



eeyore102:
Nope. Google "Benedict Cumberbatch" -- he was also in War Horse, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and BBC's Sherlock, among a bunch of other things. He's also set to play Smaug and the Necromancer in the three Hobbit movies. People have said his voice is like a jaguar trapped in a cello.

Or go to Youtube and listen to him read Ode to a Nightingale.

I've given this thread hand porn AND voice porn. So I think my job is done.

give me doughnuts: Enterprise was built at the Utopia Planitia Orbital Facility near Mars. Period. The End.


The Utopia Planitia Fleet Yard did not construct the NCC-1701. The NCC-1701 was constructed at the San Francisco Shipyards orbiting Earth.

Carth: They used anti-gravity sleds in both TOS and TNG i'd assume it was something similar to get it high enough it could take off safely. Or they use a tractor beam from a ship already in space.


One ship tractoring another ship of equal or greater mass out of Earth's atmosphere. That makes a shiatton of sense. How did Nero's temporal incursion affect the timeline to the point where the Enterprise got built in a shipyard in space to Kirk's back yard? Maybe the building materials were powered by corn.

Crappy writing and the need to have a scene where Kirk rolls up in a motorcycle and watches the Enterprise get built. No need to explain it more than that.

/these people get a lot of money to write this shiat too

In other news, the 2009 Star Trek is no longer available on Netflix streaming. I am really beginning to hate the entertainment industry and the idiotic licencing games they play.

Carth: Samwise Gamgee: Another snarling Space Villain motivated by revenge. This schtick is getting old.

Anyone remember when Trek used to be about exploration and not motherfarking combat all the time?

Yea, those movies did horrible.


It *is* possible to make good ones. Anyway, the best ones HAD space combat, but it wasn't what the movie was all about. One of my favorites, The Undiscovered Country, had a lot to say about xenophobia, diplomacy, forgiveness, etc, and managed to rock an awesome battle sequence all the same. And the villain's motivation was to protect the way of life of his homeworld in the face of a changing world. This whole Captain Ahab routine they keep falling back on is seriously getting old. Hell, Picard was the snarling one out for revenge in First Contact. You know, there are other things that can motivate people...

Water tight?

Well, it was built for space travel, so anywhere between zero and one (in reference to how much atm of pressure it can withstand).

Let's see if we can summarize the evidence:

Khan
Pros: Babbles about vengeance. Jumps around and swats Klingons like an enhanced human. Wears a weathered Starfleet uniform (Khan wore one in the original story). The Japanese trailer is teasing a twist on the Wrath of Khan ending. The blond chick could be Carol Marcus.
Cons: Cumberbatch is many things, but he's NOT a swirling miasma of ambiguous ethnicity. Blondie doesn't really scream Carol Marcus.

Gary Mitchell
Pros: Would want vengeance against Kirk. Wears a Starfleet uniform. Blondie looks a LOT like Sally Kellerman's Elizabeth Dehner. God-powers probably would allow for some of his physical stunts.
Cons: No glowing eyes. No obvious ESP. There's been an approved in-continuity nuTrek comic telling the Gary Mitchell story already (curiously without Dehner), which would make this a sequel.

Garth of Izar
Pros: Crazy, brilliant former Starfleet Officer? Check. Annnd, that's about it.
Cons: No shapeshifting. No Yvonne Craig-y green girl. And really, who cares?

Some other Botany Bay crew member
Pros: All the Khan clues still apply, with the added benefit of Cumberbatch's ethnicity working. Also, Peter Weller COULD be a Khan that was, say, thawed out some time between Kirk's birth (the branching point) and the present.
Cons: Can't think of one. I'm starting to fall into like with this idea.

Some dude with no connection to any previous Trek story
Pros: Nothing in the trailer actually augers against it.
Cons: Keeping character names a secret would be way counterproductive if you're eventually going to reveal that they're guys you've never heard of.

Other that a few shots of the primary color uniforms it's almost impossible to tell that's a Star Trek movie from that trailer. I know some of you think that's a good thing. You would be the same folks who love the heck out of Michael Bay films and other shiny objects.

Wayne 985: Awful trailer. Take a cue from The Dark Knight Rises or The Hobbit or The Avengers, for that matter. Plenty of action, but also wit and intelligence to give you a story.

This was just a montage of explosions and screaming.


But it stars Benedict Cumberbatch, so I really don't give a fark.

Bendal: Mugato: Bendal: I always thought (at least the original series made it clear) that the Enterprise couldn't enter an atmosphere, due to its non-aerodynamic shape and the shields wouldn't work in a dense atmosphere either. Plus the concern over having a warp drive with antimatter within a planet's biosphere.

They went out of their way to change continuity to having the Enterprise being built in the cornfields of Iowa. How do you think they got it out of there?

Voyager had the ability to land on a planet's surface. I understand that was like 80 years later but.... they built the Enterprise in the corn fields of Iowa.

And no doubt kept the antimatter and warp engines cold until it was heavy-lifted out of the atmosphere to the spacedock we saw the ship in, too.

Enterprise

was built at the Utopia Planitia Orbital Facility near Mars. Period. The End.

I don't care what these new whippersnapper movies have to say about it. *adjusts onion-shaped phaser*

I_C_Weener: The Enterprise has 3 forms of propulsion (4 if you count blowing up the warp core).  Impulse (nukes), Warp (something weird and stuff) and thrusters...think fire extinguishers.  How they hell did they get it off the Iowa cornfields without annhialiating the entire state?

Kazan: They have repeatedly said: It is absolutely not Khan Noonien Singh


And the Dark Knight Rises folks repeatedly said that Talia Al Ghul was not in the movie. And the Lost folks repeatedly said that the survivors weren't dead and in purgatory. And oh look, J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof are involved in both involved in Lost and Star Trek! Trust nothing until the movie comes out.

You can be water tight and still sink. It's all about buoyancy. I doubt a Bird of Prey displaces its own weight. I'm sure the same can be said of The Enterprise.

Sounds like a typical government project

Gentlemen here is our prototype design of the new Constitution Class Starship. Will hold a crew of approximately 700. With two of the new LN-64B Mod 1 warp engines it will be able to sustain Warp 9 with an upper limit of Warp 13. The sensor bays will be able...

Is it waterproof?

Ugghh, excuse me sir?

You know, can it go under water?

Well sir we don't envision a scenario where the cruiser would have to be submerged so we...

I want it waterproof.

Out of curiosity, why WOULDN'T the Enterprise be watertight?


Well, there's a big difference between keeping air in while in vacuum, and keeping water out. I'm also sure there some electronic components that do fine in a vacuum, that would suffer greatly from salt water exposure.
