Exclusive Image From Star Trek: The USS Kelvin! October 15, 2008

by 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.
See below



And here it is…

Exclusive effects shot from ‘Star Trek’
(click to enlarge)

USS Kelvin
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:

More to come soon
TrekMovie is one of five websites that are getting exclusive images from Star Trek today. Check back very soon for an update with links to all the new images!

Special thanks to Paramount Pictures for providing TrekMovie this image to share with the Trek fans

10. Joel - October 15, 2008

Real or not real? Hopefully we’ll know more soon! November is going to kick off a killer 6 months leading up to the release!

11. Spockanella - October 15, 2008

After a quiet time in the doldrums, I’m starting to get really psyched again. Keep ’em coming, Anthony et al!

12. Gary the Gorn - October 15, 2008

How about a shot from a little farther out. I’d love to see the whole ship.

13. Anthony Pascale - October 15, 2008

I know you guys have been trained to wonder about new images

But this is an official release from Paramount Pictures…and there are more to come. I don’t even need to wake Vreenak…this is REAL!

14. Captain Star Knight - October 15, 2008

The registry looks like a mixture of TOS and TMP registry design. ^_^

15. Brian - October 15, 2008

If Paramount is providing the image then it’s real. I like it….just have to get used to the Star Wars-like turrets.

16. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

So the phaser pop up all along the ship or just the hull? Sweet.

17. Mark Lynch - October 15, 2008

Interesting picture, do not like this ‘turret’ things though. Too much like Star Wars or Battlestar Galactica for my taste.

But perhaps it is just that ship.

Nice to be getting bits and pieces at long last :-)

18. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

Stock rebounds slightly and then levels off..

19. jim - October 15, 2008



20. That One Guy - October 15, 2008


May I shriek with girlish glee as I did in the Quinto/Spock thread?

Also, for all of you saying “SHOW US THE DAMN SHIP!” well, here you go. They gave you a ship. Feel free to speculate.

21. john doe - October 15, 2008

could it be that the enterprise is a new modle, kind of like the ipods, new one every year

22. MORN SPEAKS - October 15, 2008

FINALLY!!!! Something!

23. HerbieZ - October 15, 2008

I want this picture moving and liquidised and fed into my veins at regular intervals. Thank you, this is like finding water after wondering the desert for four years.

Thank you.

Thank you.


24. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Spock reaches out and touches someone.

25. jim - October 15, 2008

Link to spock choking a guy @ #19!

26. CS - October 15, 2008


27. Mark Lynch - October 15, 2008

Wonder what Jim said to piss Spock off so badly? ;-)

But what a wonderful likeness Quinto has to the character. Really looking forward to this movie. Must also say that Pine is beginning to convince me too.

Not too shabby that Abrams guy huh?

28. AJ - October 15, 2008

Oh, yeah. Here it comes. Thanks, Anthony!

What other sites are getting these?

29. MORN SPEAKS - October 15, 2008

Why is Spock choking Kirk?!?!? Pon’far time already???

30. blake powers - October 15, 2008

need the other sites.

31. JP Saylor - October 15, 2008


32. Jordan - October 15, 2008


Not sure about the turrets, but the rest is really nice.

33. Michael Adams - October 15, 2008

The turrets are horrible. My first impression is not good. Only slightly worried, will know more when I see more pictures.

34. Buckaroohawk - October 15, 2008

Freakin’ Awesome. I like the covered phaser turrets. My guess is they rest inside the hull until activated, then rise up to target and fire. Nice idea.

The hull markings look much much larger than they did in TOS, or even in the previous movies, but the font seems very indicative of TOS. The red striping around the letters and numbers reflects the TMP era, though.

Man, there’s a lot of action in this one single image. It’s going to take me some time to sort through it all.


35. Mark Lynch - October 15, 2008

Actually looking again at the picture that #19 so kindly showed us to, I believe we have seen our first glimpse of the Enterprise bridge…

Whaddya you think?

36. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Spock is one bad dude.

37. MORN SPEAKS - October 15, 2008

That looks like Sickbay, and the blurred guy in the back looks like it could be McCoy!

38. Blake Powers - October 15, 2008

I’m freaking the eff out man.

39. Salvador Nogueira - October 15, 2008

AICN has a cool Spock -Kirk picture… Have a look, guys!

40. Brian - October 15, 2008

Sweet!! Those turrets remind me of the phase cannons from Enterprise

41. I am not Herbert - October 15, 2008




42. MORN SPEAKS - October 15, 2008

And there are still 3 other shots out there waiting for us?!?! So far the shot of the Kelvin is my favorite!

43. ShawnP - October 15, 2008

There’s all coming out…here’s Nero:


44. ColonialOne - October 15, 2008

It reminds me a little bit of Galactica, dont know why, but I think is cool.

45. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

I hope those aren’t manned turrets.

46. AJ - October 15, 2008

43 ShawnP:

Access Forbidden

47. Vorus - October 15, 2008

That ship looks VERY TOS-ISH!! I am quite pleased by that. It looks obviously more detailed than anything that came out of the 60s, but it is also clearly of that era, except with earlier weaponry. (Similar to the phase cannons of “Enterprise”, actually.)

The piece of the bridge dome we can see looks spot on.

My only worry is the registry. Does it start with a zero? Or is it five digits long? Neither of those options make much sense. But I think we’ve seen at least one ship whose registry starts with zero, but I can’t remember for sure.

Either way, it looks AWESOME, and it pleases even me, a hard core canon nut.

48. The REAL Redjac - October 15, 2008

VERY COOL!!! I LOVE the new uniform Spock is wearing!!!


Thanks to JJ and Paramount for these new pics!!!


49. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Spock is choking Kirk on the bridge!

50. OneBuckFilms - October 15, 2008

Whoa ….

Fascinating. It’s all hitting at hight speed now.

51. Joel - October 15, 2008

Anthony, thanks for letting us know it’s real! Now I can truly bask in its glory without wondering if we were going to hear from Trekmovie’s resident expert on validity.

All three images from today have been AWESOME. Can’t wait to see more without the movie being spoiled too much.

52. The REAL Redjac - October 15, 2008

Is that Kirk in the pic of Spock? Could that be the bridge?

53. The REAL Redjac - October 15, 2008

Is that Kirk in the pic of Spock? Could that be the bridge?

54. Mattie - October 15, 2008

OMG i’m creaming haha http://movieblog.ugo.com/index.php/movieblog/more/exclusive_star_trek_photo/

55. Alec - October 15, 2008

Reminds me of Star Wars. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. I would need to see more to make a proper judgement about the quality of the special effects. Hint.

56. Sallah - October 15, 2008

Wow! That shot of Spock choking Kirk is freaking awesome….

57. Michael Adams - October 15, 2008

The EW pic is terrible, the Kelvin is too close, but the pic of Spock choking another person (Kirk?) is wonderful, he doesn’t have control and he is pissed. All in all it looks like Star Trek., and that is what we want.

58. Smittmaestro - October 15, 2008

I better not see Senator Vreenak in here!


59. Fortyseven - October 15, 2008

It’s funny how such a small snippet can make me very excited. Thanks, guys!

60. The REAL Redjac - October 15, 2008

Well, the new bridge from what I can see of it in the cast picture does NOT look 60’s or TOS…but then, I really didn’t expect it to. I knew it wouldn’t.

The Kelvin does not look 60’s either…but more like the TMP and thereafter designs.

Still…looks GREAT! The costumes are perfect. Curly haired Chekov is going to take some getting used to.

I like the way it’s looking. A nice update for the new millennium.

Oh, and did I say Zoe Saldana looks smokin? ;-)

61. MiniKirk - October 15, 2008

No kidding. But this is from Paramount, so it can’t be fake. Finally! Something new and real for the movie! It feels almost tangible now.

62. HMS Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Great shot. Just enough to tease us without giving too much away. I can only imagine what they have in store for us in the comming weeks and months. I want more!!

63. Rainbucket - October 15, 2008

Probably not photon torpedoes, unless they’re now energy-based. There’s no ammo feed connecting the turrets.

I’m a big geek. A very excited big geek.

64. Smittmaestro - October 15, 2008

I like the look of the uniform, retains the look of the original but uses a newer material.

These ain’t made of velour boys and girls.


65. Jason L - October 15, 2008

OMG! Turret-style phasers! And hear I thought I was being shamelessly preposterous with that idea for the Foolerprize. Whether they got the idea from me or not, this is hillarious!

66. Viking - October 15, 2008


67. Toothless Grishnar Cat - October 15, 2008

It’s important to note that NX-01 Enterprise used turret-style phaser weapons… and, when seen firing in distance shots, you couldn’t tell they were on turrets. So, it all makes sense. Sort of goes into the “hi-def TOS” approach we’ve been hearing about.

68. OneBuckFilms - October 15, 2008

68 – Didn’t they do that on Enterprise? The Phase Canons came out a hatch on the hull.

69. New Star Trek Images! | Filmonic - October 15, 2008

[…] TrekMovie got a first look at the USS Kelvin, a Federation starship from the generation before the Enterprise. […]

70. HMS Enterprise - October 15, 2008

This has much more of a ‘real’ feeling to it. No doubt there will be elements of Enterprise and TOS in this film, in terms of design.

71. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

I wonder if the Enterprise will have a grappling hook!

72. Denise de Arman - October 15, 2008

Love it with all that is within me. No reason why phaser turrets should not exist on an earlier ship – gives far greater action usage for tight shots. These sequences will ROCK on film.

73. Capt Mike From the Terran Empire - October 15, 2008

75. Dr. Image - October 15, 2008

Too WOK-ish, but VERY cool!!

I knew ILM would be amping up the detail- no doubt per JJ- now that they can finally get it to look more real than the crap digital in SW Eps.1,2,3.

78. Fanboy Prime - October 15, 2008



79. HerbieZ - October 15, 2008

One interesting thing i have noticed. The Kelvin. I automatically assumed we were looking at it head on. We are not. It is actually going <– that way. The letters are on the side of the saucer. It’s clear when you look at the bridge design, the direction of smoke from the hole near the ‘K’ and the staggering of the blue pulsed weapons fire.

80. Orb of the Emissary - October 15, 2008


81. Brandon - October 15, 2008

Wow ! Entertainment Tonight just showed the whole shot of this ship on CBS. It has a single nacelle on top. Its registry is NCC-0514. Hpoefull Anthony will update with this picture soon!

82. Brandon - October 15, 2008

In the shot they showed it kind of reminded me a little bit of NCC-1701-E! The front of the engine was blue!

83. Simon - October 15, 2008

75-“I knew ILM would be amping up the detail- no doubt per JJ- now that they can finally get it to look more real than the crap digital in SW Eps.1,2,3.”

Please, a lot of the ships in the SW prequel trilogy were *models*. There’s nothing wrong with the few space shots in those films.

97. LoyalStarTrekFan - October 15, 2008

It appears that ship design was inspired heavily by the TOS Movie era. While this is a good choice for a movie and today’s audiences but I’m sure people will be upset that these ships don’t look exactly as ships in TOS did. I’m looking forward to this movie and can’t wait until May 2009 (7 loooong months away!!)

101. OR Coast Trekkie - October 15, 2008


102. Roytheboy - October 15, 2008

Hmm, the phasers are in turrets. Enterprise (nx01) had individual phaser cannons so this would be the next logical step considering this is between “Enterprise” and “TOS”

103. Shatners Bile Duct - October 15, 2008

NOT CANNON! The obtuse angle between the nacelle & primary hull is approx .0591 meters too long for this reason myself & my starfleet brethren hereby boycott all future trek movies.

End transmission

110. THX-1138 The Fandom Menace - October 15, 2008

Kelivin is a cool looking ship. And as far as the turrets are concerned, they kind of make sense. Ever since TOS I have had a hard time wrapping my head around just how the phasers fired and aimed and all that. This will work.

111. Vorus - October 15, 2008

That pic from E.T. looks interesting. I was wondering how they were going to pull off the peculiar nacelle configuration that I’ve read about, and still have a decent looking ship. I think they did a pretty decent job. It looks like it’d fit in nicely with a slightly pre-TOS fleet.

However, that appears to be a deflector dish, and thus a secondary hull on the ventral side, not a nacelle bussard collector, possibly indicating a single nacelled ship, instead of one nacelle dorsal, and one ventral.

112. Question for Roberto Orci - October 15, 2008

I’d LOVE to hear Roberto Orci’s first impressions upon seeing the visuals, such as the U.S.S. Kelvin picture. Did it equal–or surpass–what he thought of while working on the script?

Roberto? :)

123. falcon - October 16, 2008

Let the nitpicking begin in earnest…

Actually, this is a somewhat legitimate question. In the US Navy, a captain is equivalent in rank to an Air Force or Army colonel – one step below general. In the navy, captain is one step below rear admiral. A colonel has usually spent anywhere from 25-30 years in the service before pinning on the eagle.

Kirk looks about 25 in that pic. Canon says in the 2nd season, he was 34 (“The Deadly Years”). That would make him about 32 when he took command, assuming the 2nd season was his second year in command. One has to wonder how one so young rises up the ranks so quickly to attain a position that older, more seasoned (and perhaps wiser) men and women have worked all their careers for.

And the Federation flagship, no less.

Maybe a few more wrinkles and a little less hair…McCoy (Urban) looks like he’s about 10 years older than Kirk.

I wouldn’t blame Chris Pike if he didn’t want some punk-a$$ kid sitting in the center seat of *my* ship.

127. cagmar - October 16, 2008

Star Trek got phasers right by making them an unbroken beam. That is how an energy weapon would have to work. Once the beam dislocates from the weapon source, it would disappear. Star Trek was all about the unbroken beams, that was one of the universal qualities of its sci-fi make-up. Torpedoes can fire in balls only because they are objects with a mass that is ignited upon firing. They have physical torpedo tubes. Phasers do not. They cannot be dashed.

The turrets firing in this picture are a sign that someone is badly messing with Trek– and for the worse. Sigh.

128. cagmar - October 16, 2008

Mind you, a lot of Star Trek missed the point after TOS and TNG. So we’ll just have to let it keep going more and more wrong….

129. Toothless Grishnar Cat - October 16, 2008

Remember ‘Balance of Terror’, when the Enterprise was firing intermittant phaser pulses instead of beams? The sequence was akin to a WWII destroyer depth-charging a submarine, and if the attackers in this sequence are indeed cloaking-capable Romulans, this could very well be what’s going on.

130. Matt - October 16, 2008

The USS Kelvin is getting absolutely pounded by the Rankine!

131. JBond - October 16, 2008

I’m making a guess here, but it’s possible that the Kelvin is firing some kind of torpedoes instead of phaser bolts…

136. Chris Haywood - October 17, 2008

Nice to see some pictures. But if the ship is older than the NCC-1701, it shouldn’t have the same lettering design or hull plating patterns at the movie era ships. Also, it should be firing lasers, not phasers. If you’ll remember from the TOS episode, “The Menagerie”, Pike’s Enterprise used Lasers. Phasers didn’t come into wide use until after Kirk took command. Even the sidearms in the episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before” were the same “hand lasers” that Pike’s crew used on Talos IV. Just my two cents.

I’m really optimistic that this movie will kick butt! My main concern is with story, characterization, direction, etc. But I do have opinions about the visual aspects too. Gotta say, I hope there’s more to the Kelvin than we see here because to me this design looks awkward from this angle. Not very menacing or impressive. I want to see more before judging it, though.

Then again, I wasn’t thrilled about the look of the Excelsior or Galaxy class ships, but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the shows they were in.

The star trek promo’s suck! due to there aint much to go on or to wet the fans appetite wid!, just getting bored waiting for da movie 2 hit the big screen! give us somthing to get excited about and look forward too spending our hard working bucks on recklessly on its goods and franchise coz for me and a whole lot of fans its begining to loosing its momentum and also its hype which will make the movie a great fan disappointment and a let down for the long, long , long anticipation or constipation of its release!.

I love the new phaser turrets. Alot more true to TOS, which had ‘phaser banks’, which were very much turrets, usually with two phasers each. They are more dome-shaped in the technical drawings, though.

Are my eyes deceiving me, but are there people operating those turret canons?

Might be point defense weapons though I’ve never saw those before in Star Trek. If the Star Trek ships could put up a screen like a Battlestar no torpedo would come through.

If the last trailer is any hint to the erra of the Kelvin then the ship is easily 20 years older then the Enterprise.

In any of the timelines and scifi game systems based on the trek Uverse the federation made some major technilogical advancements in that 20 year period.

Practical Phasor technology
Photon torpedo tech
defensive sheilds = only had atmospheric sheilding or sheilds to protect against space debris prior

Prior to these developments most timelines say the Federation used lasers turrets, which the Kelvin apears to have.

The Kelvin is a over hull engine design which was common in most timeline of federation scout ships or destroyers.

Scaling the Kelvin pics to those of the Enterprise (a Heavy Cruiser). The Kelvin is esialy half the size of the Enterprise. (Destroyer or scout)

Hi the uss kelvin is awsome so is the movie so I just want to say that my name is kelvin

I think those turrets are some kind of anti-missile defense.. because they fired rapid pulses of blue.. maybe to try to detonate those Romulan guided missiles with wings?
The Kelvin also fired separate red phasers and photon torpedoes. So..

Just saw the movie twice this weekend.

150. JB - May 16, 2009

I saw the movie…


so yeah…
it’s good…

151. JB - May 16, 2009

Sorry, not great. Just the stuff up above.


I saw them twice on the same day. TWICE. The Kelvin is a good ship with protons, missles, and laser cannons.

152. Rawnchi Warp Impulser - October 28, 2010

Dose the Kelvin even have any torpedoes?

I was aware of this already, but nonetheless there are some beneficial pieces which finalized the picture for me, thank you so much!
