Red alert, but Purple color? WTF?

April 3, 2009 12:10 pm


Says he was assistant instructor of the hand to hand combat class. A bit of a canon bend, but considering the timeline changes quite possible.

The more I see, the more excited I get. Which I did not think possible! The bridge looks fantastic.

April 3, 2009 12:12 pm

Still no first name for Uhura?

I’m still lovin’ this but that bridge is so bright it could do retinal damage from prolonged exposure. They must look forward to red alerts to dim the lights a bit.

April 3, 2009 12:15 pm

also noticed its very likely bones was a doctor BEFORE signing up for Starfleet as he went to the University of Mississippi before entering Starfleet.

April 3, 2009 12:16 pm

I love the little joysticks!

LOVE some of the background info, ESPECIALLY the wonderfuly canon (Hey, deal with it) comment of McCoy attending the U of Mississippi! I also love the comment that Kirk is a Hand-to-hand combat instructor… that Kirk-fu has to come from somewhere!

Meaningless tidbits that just overflow with character. GREAT shots… even if I still do not like the cluttered Ipod bridge, the photos are incredible shots!

April 3, 2009 12:17 pm

Awesome stuff.

With apologies to the great one….how sweeeet is is!

April 3, 2009 12:19 pm

Hell yeah! Kirk-Fu is a obligatory course at the Academy xD

April 3, 2009 12:22 pm

I would not call it Kirks pajamas…almost looks like the jackets they wore in the original pilot…a nod to canon?

April 3, 2009 12:22 pm

Uhura is proficient in 83% of Federation Languages.

Wow……LISTEN TO THE MUSIC !!!! Must be from the soundtrack….great………..

April 3, 2009 12:23 pm

Anyone finding the panoramas don’t launch? I’m on a Mac running Safari 4 Beta, which runs the rest of the site fine (Flash), but I just click on em and…nothing.

I do Like the view Screen but the rest of the Bridge Sucks.

I was wondering the same thing.

April 3, 2009 12:24 pm

I like the transporter room when you look at the crew dossiers.

Also, good detail on saying Pike was from Mojave. So far, I’m loving it all!

April 3, 2009 12:25 pm


// I also love the comment that Kirk is a Hand-to-hand combat instructor… that Kirk-fu has to come from somewhere! //


April 3, 2009 12:25 pm

Did anyone notice they finally gave the movie a rating? PG-13 it is.

April 3, 2009 12:26 pm

Good to see more details of the Bridge.

Dossiers are fun. Uhura in charge of the singing group. Nice touch !!!

April 3, 2009 12:26 pm

11. I take it back. I think it’s mostly the lighted floor around the captain’s chair combined with the rest of the lights that give me a headache. Looks excellent otherwise!!!!!!

bridge has Lightbulbs in the 23rd century?

April 3, 2009 12:26 pm

Sweet! Red alert, raise shields! Full power to phaser banks and deflector!

I can’t stand the wait any longer! The nerd in me is about to explode!

AND…. PG-13…….now the movie finally semms to have been rated…

April 3, 2009 12:33 pm

Oh noes! Kirk is an instructor at the academy! McCoy attended a university, likely becoming a doctor before entering the academy. Uhura is born in Africa, and is profecient in her field. They stuck to and respected canon. How dare they! They are ruinin…..

Oh wait.

Bloody fantastic!

April 3, 2009 12:34 pm

I bet the simulator bridge and Kelvin bridge will look much better than the Abramsprise’s bridge.

April 3, 2009 12:34 pm

Isn’t that a new, different piece of music playing than before? Sounds more symphonic and more of a discernable theme than the last one. Looking forward to hearing the main title and theme.

The movie is officially rated PG-13 now too for



April 3, 2009 12:39 pm

Does this mean people will finally stop complaining about all the white on the bridge? Because a simple glance at those panoramas shows the bridge is FULL of color.

April 3, 2009 12:40 pm

I got goosebumps listening to the music and reading the dossiers.

I think this set includes the tradition of a ship’s plaque. Have a look at the right side bridge entrance (looking at the back wall of the bridge). There is a gold trapezoid which looks an awful lot like a bridge plaque. If it is, there are always special traditions and citations on these–paying homage to writers, actors, etc. I’d love to see what this one says!

Since this is a time travel story, I keep wondering if they will correct the timeline changes at the end of the firlm and the crew will end up on a replica of the original Enterprise bridge, shocking the heck out of all of us!

April 3, 2009 12:46 pm

Great to see the crew bios are true to what we accept as canon. Lots of unknowns surrounding the background of these characters but good to see their basics are presented up front.

April 3, 2009 12:48 pm

Also, any idea of what class of starship the Kelvin is?

April 3, 2009 12:49 pm

I don’t get new music, just the old one.

April 3, 2009 12:49 pm

#38—“Does this mean people will finally stop complaining about all the white on the bridge?”

Probably not, unfortunately.

April 3, 2009 12:49 pm

I wonder which is the real shape of the view screen, the rectangular shape or the trapezoid? Definitely to do with polarized or wide-angle lenses on the camera. We have seen Spock standing beside it and it looks like a trapezoid. Or is it both, depends on where you stand on the bridge, weird.

April 3, 2009 12:54 pm

Still not crazy about the fragile looking/overlighted bridge. I am very disappointed in the ceiling dome. Looks like it came right out of a nightclub.

Dunsel Report
April 3, 2009 12:56 pm

That must mean there are six federation languages and Uhura knows five of them. English, Vulcan, Andorian…? I still hold out hope for a dossier file on Thal Arctos, the polar bear engineering officer envisioned for “Phase II.”

April 3, 2009 12:56 pm

Everything looks great…except the bridge. it just doesn´t look like anything of Starfleet. of course you see how much money went into it nevertheless imo the production designer failed big time with the bridge.
I really hope there is a conclusion to this mess at the end of the movie, something which looks a bit more like Starfleet.

#8 –

Actually, in “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” Gary Mitchell comments that Kirk was an instructor at Starfleet Academy (with the rank of Lieutenant).

I hate that freaking Bridge. What’s with all those other extra stations? Despite the production designer talking out of his ass, the Bridge looks NOTHING like the TOS version. Hell, it doesn’t look like any Star Trek bridge. Wtf…

April 3, 2009 12:58 pm

So McCoy already has attended the University Of Mississippi prior to his entry into SFA. I wonder if he attends Medical School there first and enters the Academy with an “M.D.”, or if his study at Ole Miss is just “Pre-Med”.

Something like that could make a big difference in his age as he is depicted in the film.
