    I think it's to hide the fact that he had to shave down his naturally thick, caterpillar-like eyebrows for a more Vulcan look.

    Aha! I wonder if they will be like that during filming of some Hereos eps. I dont know how I feel about Sylar having thin and pointy brows. Not as menacing.

    It looks like they went with Gabriel Koerner's painting from last year's Star Trek Calendar. Which is cool as it had a very nice retro design. Kinda like a bridge from the Enterprise form the show of the same name, to the movie refit design.

    A fun fact on the Bussard Collectors, is despite the spining of them on the original TV series, the model used didn't have any moving parts. It was all just a reflection of the fans used to keep the model cool while it was being filmed under very hot lights.

    Well depending on how much retconning Abrams and co. have engaged in... The Enterprise was in service for 10-15 years* by the time Kirk became it's Captain, that shot could simply be of a refit. And since Capt. Pike is going to appear it looks like Enterprise will have already been on duty before Kirk comes along




    *[nerd mode] In keeping with the "she's 20 years old" line from Star Trek 2 and the "5 years rebuilding and refitting" line from Star Trek 1.[/nerd mode]

    Retcon.

    In TOS episode, (before his importance to Star Trek was later established in the TNG-era shows) Zefram Cochrane was said to be 'of Alpha Centauri'. No mention of him being an Earth-born human.

    It was a retcon in First Contact that moved him to Earth and make him pivitol to first contact with the Vulcans. To explain this inconsistancy, in the series Enterprise he had *moved* to Alpha Centauri later in his life before vanishing.

    Considering Transformers significantly differs in most new iterations, going by your logic everybody involved with other Transformers series since G1 must have hated Transformers, too.

    Also, you seem to be under the impression the writers are also personally responsible for other departments in the movie, such as production design, direction and casting. Perhaps you should attend film school 101.

    My understanding is that they had sequential lighting in there, that created that effect.

    That's not so much a problem as the date 2063 was for the first warp flight... every reference material I had on Trek prior to First Contact stated 2061 from the original episode.

    Sadly, I don't have Metamorphosis to be able to confirm that :(

    I agree.

    whats up with the turbines??

    did they run out of imagination?

    I fail to see what the turbines would be spinning/picking up in the vacuum of space!

    Star Trek will be viewed by the same 12,445 people who watch all the other ones.

    5,000 more people will see either the 1st 15 minutes or the last 14 minutes as they duck into the theater room to kill time before/after their main movie runs.


    until they bring back hot alien sex to star trek, the franchise is doomed!

    Hydrogen. (Or, more specifically in Star Trek, deuterium.)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bussard_ramjet

    Would it need to spin like a turbine? I dunno, but it looks cool. But it WOULD be collecting stuff. Space isn't a total void.
