justabitdisturbed: it's Khan's hand you see in the foreground
give me doughnuts: Enterprise was built at the Utopia Planitia Orbital Facility near Mars. Period. The End.
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.
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.
Alphax: Also, is the Enterprise now watertight, like the Phoenix in Battle of the Planets?
Five Tails of Fury: Hmm. I'll watch it.But Abrams, you damn well better have Kzin in ST3.

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.
GAT_00: Then they can send Spock off to revive himself, since he knows what he's going to go through once he gets revived.
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
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
GAT_00: Counter-argument: the Bird of Prey was clearly space worthy and it sunk.
PsyLord: Well, it did crash land into the bay. That could've caused some rupturing of the hull or something.
Carth: We're talking about a civilization that has mastered faster than light travel and teleportation. I would hope they could engineer a spaceship that could also go underwater.
Alphax: Well, we've never seen the Enterprise go lower than the upper atmosphere before. (couple times in the original series)
Alphax: Damnit, they REALLY don't want to give this guy a name yet.
RexTalionis: So, I'm guessing Alice Eve is the new Elizabeth Dehner.
Edward Rooney Dean of Students: Alphax: Also, is the Enterprise now watertight, like the Phoenix in Battle of the Planets?Out of curiosity, why WOULDN'T the Enterprise be watertight?
