Exclusive Image From Star Trek: The USS Kelvin! October 15, 2008by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
And the hits keep on coming. TrekMovie has got an exclusive new image from the Star Trek movie and it is a pretty cool effects shot of a ship in battle….not that ship, but a ship nonetheless.
And here it is…
Looking closely we can make out the name of the ship as ‘Kelvin.’ Back in May TrekMovie first reported spoilers about the USS Kelvin. Check that article for some spoilers about the ship, but one thing is clear from the image without reading any spoilers…this ship is having a bad day. Here are some quick thoughts on the design:
- Ship design appears similar (but not the same) as the USS Enterprise seen in the teaser trailer
- Hull pattern is somewhat reminiscent of the 1701 refit and other ships of the of the TOS movie era
- The phasers are on turrets (did they get this idea from TrekMovie.com’s ‘Foolerprise’?) and appear to ‘pulse’ instead of a steady beam (might actually be photon torpedoes)
- ship appears to be being hit by red phasers (or other beam weapon)
