Official Star Trek Site Updated With Additional ‘Dossiers’ + more April 14, 2009

by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: Marketing/Promotion,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

This morning the official site for the new Star Trek Movie (startrekmovie.com) was updated. The most interesting new thing was the second wave of ‘dossiers’, with three new entries, including Spock and one showing a cool space station and some ships. They have also added the three new clips (which were previously exclusives) and some new photos (which were sent to some international sites last week). More details below. 

 


There are some small modifications to the main site like a bigger ENTER SITE button, IMAX logo (and link to the IMAX site) and a link to the the new iPod Application. The video section has been updated with new navigation and it now includes the three recently released clips (see below), and the gallery also has added some recently released images (also see below). The big update is with the dossiers.

New Dossiers
There are three new entries in the Dossiers section at [direct link to startrekmovie.com dossiers]. Now there are a total of 8, with spaces for 17. The new ones are for Spock, Starfleet Academy, and The Federation. Each dossier image is also available as a downloadable wallpaper and has interesting tidbits about the characters.

More ships at Enterprise Project
There are also some new ships at the ‘Enterprsie Project’ gallery of artist renditions of the new Enterprise (startrekmovie.com/modelgallery). Currently there are 16 of the total of 25 models on display, including a ‘Slusho’ Enterprise (a JJ Abrams reference from the Cloverfield) movie).

Wow, this just gets better and better. Can’t wait!

Spock is an instructor of phonology? And ethics?!
The founders of the Federation are listed as Earth, Vulcan, Andoria and Tellar. What about Alpha Centauri?

Nice Starbase. Very Franz Joseph-esque.

I’m liking the modern-retro feel of the ships and technology.

Spock
April 14, 2009 1:51 pm

The ships are very starfleet battles as well.

That station reminds me of Starbase 1 in the tech manual.

Is that a redress of the Sears Tower in the Academy picture?!

April 14, 2009 1:57 pm

@#2: Chances are that The Alpha Centauri Outpost (it was still called that way in 2152) was under the control of the United Earth Government. I simply doubt that a colony would be a *founding member* of an interstellar alliance.

The Space station looks incredible

Is that shuttle’s name the Moore? Props to the former Star Trek producers?

April 14, 2009 2:01 pm

Heh. that starbase design… Starfleet Battles, anyone?

Jordan
April 14, 2009 2:01 pm

I think these are really awesome.

Yeah, #3, the return to a Franz Joseph-esque Star Trek is totally awesome. I’m excited to see this movie go back to a pre-“Motion Picture” sense of Trek, the kind of possibilities that the original Trek fans imagined during the decade between Janice Lester and V’ger, when the galaxy was still full of danger and the bridge was where you had your ass hauled by security guards so that Spock could threaten you with court martial to your face.

Check out how the Transamerica building has been dwarfed…

So, there’s a picture of Spock and Uhura having a “moment”, footage of them sharing a hug in the trailers, and with the debut of Spock’s dossier today, the knowledge that Spock is the current instructor of Advanced Phonology at the academy… the same class that Uhura’s dossier says she is an aide for.

Very interesting. I think Spock/Uhura could be the film’s most unexpected friendship/relationship.

That space station is straight out of Amarillo, TX…

I have also been waiting patiently for decades for a Franz Joseph Star Trek world to come on the screen! Do I see a Dreadnought docked at the UFP in that photo??

April 14, 2009 2:11 pm

#2, Enterprise pretty much confirmed Alpha Centauri as a colony of Earth and not a whole race of aliens like FJ had placed them at. The 4 signers of the Articles of the Federation as of Enterprise where the ones they listed.

The space station is awesome!!!

is that Utopia Planita shipyards?

April 14, 2009 2:19 pm

The Enterprise is docked top and center. Or at least, it looks like the Enterprise.

Why am I not seeing the 9th dossier that is supposedly available? The X one referred to in the article????

Jonny Boy
April 14, 2009 2:27 pm

Frakkin’ sweet! New ships! The first Star Trek book I ever got was the “Starfleet Technical Manual” by Franz Joseph. It was a present from my parents, probably about sixteen years ago. Nice to see a nod to FJ’s starship designs. The Constitution-Class ship (Enterprise?) looks beautiful, too. (I know, from that far away, its easy to look good, but I really do love this design.)

they kept the academy motto! well thank heaven for small mercies, one less thing for some to try and bludgeon everyone else over the head with… ;p

April 14, 2009 2:30 pm

I want a Dossier of the Enterprise, but from a different angle than we’ve seen before.

Colonel West
April 14, 2009 2:31 pm

apologies for the double post..

@19:

it’s probably the outpost where Kirk talks Admiral Nakamura I think it was into giving him the Enterprise back in TMP, in orbit above San Fran if I remember correctly.

Starbase 1 Kicks A$$!!!!!!!

April 14, 2009 2:33 pm

Ex Astris Scientia is also still canon, yippie! :-)

Alexander
April 14, 2009 2:34 pm

If you look at the Federation emblem there are three large stars within the starfield which represents each of the original founding members… Earth, Vulcan and Andoria..

THERE. ARE. FOUR. LIGHTS!

Gareth
April 14, 2009 2:35 pm

Can’t wait for someone like Furuta to make models of the new ships!

April 14, 2009 2:36 pm

The music is on the official website is absolutely incredibly FANTASTIC… if you listen closely you can hear the undertones of TMP and TWOK. Great, great, great.

Tony Whitehead
April 14, 2009 2:40 pm

Great to see so many lovers of the original Technical Manual around here. That single image of Starbase 1 is my favorite image so far! Thanks for giving us this Franz Joseph homage! Great to see the franchise in the hands of true fans…..

Rock on!

Utopia Planitia is on or above Mars. This station orbits Earth(as per the caption).

UFP station looks like a Death Star with airport terminals attached….

Looking good so far. I finally viewed the panoramas of the new Enterprise and I must say I would hate to be the one to have to change all those light bulbs. I see why there are so many lense flares in thehots they are showing us so far.

Selor
April 14, 2009 2:43 pm

Wow I like that station! Those ships are nice too, would rather see more detailed pictures of them ;)

Richard Daystrom
April 14, 2009 2:44 pm

the shots, the shots!!

April 14, 2009 2:48 pm

#12 @Steve I couldn’t agree more. The trailer showing someone w/Uhura in make-out mode implies it’s Kirk (since the shots before/after are of him), but if you look closely, the character’s face in that shot is obscured and he has thick hair (more like Spock’s than Kirk’s).

Unbel1ever
April 14, 2009 2:52 pm

I love the Spock and Kirk as well as the Uhura still. Looks really like them. The Federation station looks awful. Like a Trade Federation ship from Star Wars. But the production design was – apart from the uniforms – awful from the beginning, so I’m looking forward to the stories and characters.

Dr. Image
April 14, 2009 2:53 pm

So the station appears as prior to the timeline being changed??
Or after? Because those ships are… waaay different.
Or are we talking more like post- NX01 era?

JeFF
April 14, 2009 2:55 pm

YAY new SHIPS!!! How long I have hungered for some new designs… this is awesome!

I can’t wait to bury myself in tech manuals again!

The TOS Purist aka The Purolator
April 14, 2009 2:56 pm

Notice that the other ships have Kelvin-style nacelles rather than the ones for the Enterprise.

Spock/Uhura isn’t such an unexpected relationship…not if you’ve seen “The Man Trap” and/or “Charlie X” and know about the fanfics that have been floating around for the past three decades.

Bill Peters
April 14, 2009 3:18 pm

so what do you call the station right above earth Starfleet HQ?

ProperTrekkieUK
April 14, 2009 3:18 pm

I think the Starbase is exceptionally well designed, and nothing I have seen so far, maybe with the exception of Scotty’s waterflume in engineering, makes me the slightest bit worried about this film! Love it!

BlackBirdCD
April 14, 2009 3:25 pm

Oh yeah, the music is pretty neat. Any confirmation on whether this is the real beast or not?

Benjamin Luna
April 14, 2009 3:31 pm

So is the spacedock image a “screen cap” from the movie?

DGill
April 14, 2009 3:33 pm

That new Spock picture has me confused. Did he mistake the transporter room for the bathroom?? :D

That was a joke by the way. I know it’s supposed to tie into his being beamed down to Vulcan in the second act.

Matt
April 14, 2009 3:43 pm

@21 – Aaron R. –

I had the same question. I only get 8 total dossiers, not the nine mentioned in the article.

Mike Ten
April 14, 2009 3:47 pm

#46, I agree with you 100%. I hope that “waterflume” is on the planet they find Scotty on not the Enterprise.
